Bersamin underscores humility in judges
Chief Justice Lucas P. Bersamin emphasized the importance of humility in judges during the retirement ceremony for Court of Appeals Associate Justice Sesinando E. Villon on July 15, 2019 at the Rizal Park Hotel, Ermita, Manila.
Citing Villon’s humility, Bersamin said that it is “the hardest of all the desirable virtues for judges to attain, probably because of their exalted positions in the society.”
Villon joined the Judiciary in 1993 as Regional Trial Court Judge (RTC) in Macabebe, Pampanga until his appointment as RTC Judge in Manila in 1999. He was promoted as Associate Justice of the Court of Appeals in 2004.
