CA junks complaint of
2 ex-BCC teachers
BY CHRYSEE SAMILLANO
The Court of Appeals Nineteenth Division has granted the petition for certiorari filed by the Board of Trustees of the Bacolod City College, led by its chairman, former Mayor and now Bacolod Rep. Evelio Leonardia, in the complaint for mandamus and damages filed by two former contractual teachers of BCC.
It also ordered that the orders of the Regional Trial Court Branch 46 in Bacolod City, dated March 12 and May 30, 2012, in Civil Case No. 11-13835, be annulled and set aside, and enter a new one dismissing the petition for mandamus and damages filed by contractual teachers Rosalia Lorilla and Susan Grandeza.
In its decision, the Court stated that it found that Lorilla was not hired as instructor by Leonardia because of her mediocre teaching performance, based on the Teachers’ Behavioral Inventory Records, and by the evaluation of numerous classes and students, that showed her to be an inferior teacher.
