Postscript on dollar deposits and SALNs

By

Acting on the motion of PSBank, the Supreme Court dismissed the bank’s petition to stop the Senate from opening the dollar deposits of then Chief Justice Renato C.

By

Did Chief Justice Renato Corona “hoist himself on his own petard” by having the unflappable Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales subpoenaed?

Hollow victory

A case of winning the battle, but losing the war? We can’t be certain until after the impeachment trial is over, but at this point, it looks like Chief Justice Renato Corona has notched a hollow victory with the Supreme Court’s issuance of a temporary restraining order against the disclosure of any details of his dollar accounts with Philippine Savings Bank.
