CA grants Recto custody,
Peña won’t give up child


The Court of Appeals has awarded actress Marie Roxanne “Plinky” Recto permanent custody of her son with Pulupandan Mayor Magdaleno Peña, but has upheld the lower court ruling denying her a Permanent Protection Order, saying the acts she alleged against the mayor did not constitute violence.

The CA Special Fifth Division, in its decision promulgated on October 14, said it was partially granting the appeal of Recto, and was affirming the July 12, 2007 decision of the Regional Trial Court of Mandaluyong City Branch 214 with modification.

Peña yesterday said the issue of custody is dead because his son is now out of the country.moremoremore

Appeals court denies bid to
lift 8-month suspensions


The suspension of the 17 Silay City employees stays for now.

The Supreme Court has dismissed their petition asking it to prohibit the Office of the Ombudsman from continuing their eight-month and one day suspension from work.

The SC Second Division, in its resolution dated September 12, said the arguments adduced in the petition for prohibition with urgent application for a temporary restraining order and or writ of preliminary injunction assailing the August 3, 2010, ruling of the Ombudsman, “failed to sufficiently show that the questioned decision is tainted with grave abuse of discretion”.moremoremore
