Former Associate Justice Priscilla Baltazar-Padilla dies at 63

Retired Associate Justice Priscilla Baltazar-Padilla passed away on Friday, August 27, months after leaving the Supreme Court. She was 63.

Baltazar-Padilla rose from the ranks within the Judiciary, having started as a Metropolitan Trial Court judge in 1996 until she was appointed to the high court in July 2020.

However, that was short-lived as she filed for early retirement in November that same year, citing “physical disability.”

It is said that she endured an illness.

She is an alumna of the Lyceum of the Philippines University,

Condolences poured on social media.
