The Supreme Court (SC) has decided not to rush things and will continue to deliberate on the quo warrant petition of Solicitor General Jose Calida who sought to revoke the legislative franchise of ABS-CBN network.
“The Justices need more time to further study the case,” said SC Spokesman Brian Hosaka.
Hosaka noted that the SC already deferred from ruling on the petition during its en banc session held on Tuesday (Feb. 10).
“The case will again be included in the agenda of the court on April 14, 2020 when it starts its summer session in Baguio,” he said.
Calida filed before the SC a quo warranto petition which sought to revoke the legislative franchises of ABS-CBN Corp. which will expire on May 4 and ABS-CBN Convergence Inc. due to alleged violations.
The solicitor general also sought before the SC a gag order to compel the parties from speaking publicly concerning the petition.
