A sociable Chief Justice

Posted by akosistella on May 15, 2010


The newly appointed Supreme Court chief justice, Renato Corona, is publicly known for his decisions–mostly favoring the Arroyo administration–and  dissents.

In a recent case, Guingona v. Comelec, the Court compelled the Commission on Elections to disclose all the information on the technical preparations for the polls “given the alarming details in the run-up” to our first automated elections. On this issue of transparency, he cast a dissenting vote.

It is not far-fetched to think that a person who is averse to disclosing information that is of public interest–and a Supreme Court justice at that–would like to keep a low profile and, well, keep to himself and his work. But Corona doesn’t. His social calendar seems to be busy.
