Lost in translation: Law student differentiates SC, lower courts
It seems like that there is a double standard existing in today’s judiciary system. One aspiring abogado pointed out the difference between the perception of the Supreme Court and the other lower courts in the Philippines.
Pag lower court nagkamali,
Grave abuse of discretion.
— Angelo Gabrillo (@GABRILLOSAURUS) August 12, 2018
The abogado aspirant noted that they suffer different consequences when it comes to making errors. He wrote that whenever the lower courts make a mistake, it’s a “grave abuse of discretion.”
However, the Supreme Court seems to get all the free pass. He wrote that when the SC makes a mistake, they leave with nothing but a slap in the wrist as they claim that “it is just part of the law of the land.”
