• CA junks ABS-CBN petition vs Willie Revillame


    THE Court of Appeals has finally resolved the legal tussle between ABS-CBN and TV host Willie Revillame in connection with the cancellation of the host’s former show “Wowowee” without giving him a replacement program of the same kind or of equivalent importance. In a 25-page decision penned by Associate Justice Amy Lazaro-Javier and concurred by Associate Justices Mario Lopez and Mechor Sadang, the CA’s Special Seventh Division dismissed the special civic action for certiorari filed by the network assailing several interlocutory orders of the Regional Trial Court, Branch 217, Quezon City in a civil case filed by the TV host against the broadcast firm. “Since, Revillame no longer performs with ABC’s TV5, the subject of ABS-CBN’s prayer for TRO no longer exists,” the court stated.
