Supreme Court (SC) (MANILA BULLETIN)

In an advisory, the postponement was due the self-quarantine being undertaken by some of the SC justices as precaution against the corona virus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

This was the second postponement done by the SC due to COVID-19.

The arguments set last Feb. 23 was postponed and held last March 2 for the same reason.

Thus, the presentation of the government’s side on the constitutionality of ATA will be done on March 16 by Solicitor General Jose C. Calida.
