Last July 7, the SC had already issued an order consolidating the first four petitions.
These petitions are from group of lawyers led by Ateneo and La Salle law professor Howard Calleja; Albay Rep. Edcel Lagman; Makabayan bloc of Congress led by Bayan Muna party-list Rep. Carlos Zarate; and a group of law professors from the Far Eastern University (FEU).
