Leonen to Molo: You have one week to research
Associate Justice Marvic Leonen is keen on facing off with petitioner and former student, Atty. Alfredo Molo.
The abogado gave him another week to do his research.
“You have 1 week to research on the case” – Justice Leonen to Atty. Molo
Next week na daw ulit ang recitation ni Atty Molo. Well done, Atty Molo. I sooo look forward how Justice Leonen will interpellate when Atty Ursua and Cong Lagman presents

Netizens fondly called their exchange as reminiscent of a law school recitation. In another tweet, one theorized that he wants Molo to present a relevant Philippine jurisprudence instead of an international one.
justice leonen actually challenges atty. molo to use philippine jurisprudence instead of those from other countries so he really is challenging the petitioners here and i think that’s just a great way to strengthen their case. https://t.co/ZS7arWVdul

This is somehow a challenge for the petitioners, and might end up helping their case in declaring Anti-Terror Law as unconstitutional.
War flashbacks to Prof. Leonen!
