2

Undersigned petitioner fully paid all the legal, docket and all other fees on all the above Petitions / Complaints / Amended Complaint as proved by the Office of the Clerk of Court Official Receipts. Copies of all the official receipts submitted to the Court, are collectively attached as Annex B -3 hereof. Pre-trial, Stipulation of Facts, and Trial
a.) In the Pre-trial Order dated 19 March 1999, the Court ruled / terminated

the pre-trial and granted defendants Blancos plea and Manifestation that they are adopting the answer to the complaint already filed by their codefendant, Atty. Rodel Gil Villarico.
b.) The Pre-Trial Brief dated 22 February 1999 of defendant Atty. Villarico

(adopted thusly by defendants Blancos) submitted the negative defense, inter alia, of the complaint states, and that the plaintiff has, no cause of action against the defendants and it also submitted the only Issues: 1. Whether the plaintiff has cause of action against the defendants, and 2. If the answer in the first issue is in the negative, will the defendant be entitled to his claim enumerated in the Compulsory Counterclaim. It further alleged and stated that F. Witnesses to be Presented: 1. Atty. Vilarico and his co-defendant Jessie Floro will be presented to testify that the complaint was merely to annoy and pester the defendants as the complaint states no cause of action, the plaintiff has no remedy in law.
c.) Defendants spouses Blancos and Villaricos Answer with Compulsory

Counterclaim dated 10 December 1998, submitted the SPECIAL AND AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSES of 5. The complaint states, and that the plaintiff has, no cause of action. Xxx. 6. xxx , he was not privy to any document signed by his co-defendants nor has he been an instrumental witness thereto. Defendants in the pleading, promised to present witnesses and documents, but they miserably failed.

d.)

The parties thereafter submitted the Stipulations of Facts with Admissions, and the Court admitted the same, and the Comments.

e.) During all the pre-trial and trials / hearings of motions, only undersigned

Judge Floro appeared, testified and submitted unrebutted evidence, while all defendants failed to be present, even once; further, they failed to crossexamine Judge Floro, and the Court ordered that all the defendants had waived their rights to cross-examine Judge Floro. Furthermore, they failed to submit any witness or documentary evidence to rebut Judge Floros admitted testimonial and documentary evidence, as they promised, despite several court orders for them to do so.
f.) The Court admitted Judge Floros duly offered Exhibits A to I-sub-

markings, for all the purposes offered, as defendants failed to rebut them, due to their complete ABSENCE in all proceedings, from 1998 until today. The Court finally declared that all defendants had waived their rights to present evidence. Copies of a) the Br. 9, RTC, Malolos, Pre-trial Order dated 19 March 1999, b) the Pre-Trial Brief dated 22 February 1999 of defendant Atty. Villarico and the Defendants Blancos / Villaricos ANSWER WITH COMPULSORY COUNTERCLAIM dated 10 December 1998, c) the Parties Stipulations of Facts with Admissions, and d) the Court Orders dated August 12, 2004, September 13 & 22, 2004, and 17 June, 2005, are attached as ANNEXES C, C-1, C-2, C-3, C-4, C-5, C-6, & C-7, respectively hereof. 3. Accordingly, these LRC and Civil cases were ordered by respondent Judge Thelma Pinero-Cruz (Judge Thelma, for brevity), submitted for partial judgment on 17 June, 2005 and 22 September, 2004; Vide copies of the Court orders attached as Annexes C-6, 6-7, hereof. 4. However, since the LRC Petitioners Spouses Alfredo and Florentina Trinidad, despite repeated demands by undersigned Judge Floro, failed and refused to pay him the amount due on the contract, admitted evidence KASUNDUAN of March 20, 1998, Judge Floro asked the court for LEAVE to admit Supplemental and Amended Supplemental Pleadings to add these
4

spouses as defendants and to join issues with them to pay the sum. Judge Floro found as reasons of their failure to pay, the critical facts that - LRC petitioner Alfredo Trinidad suffered a stroke, while LRC petitioner, his wife, Florentina Trinidad suffered lingering illnesses; further, their daughter Ann Trinidad was allegedly swindled and separated from her spouse, while Anns daughter Bea suffered great physical crab deformity of both legs; her brother Alfred Trinidad was hooked on cock fighting; but considering that undersigned was appointed Judge on November 5, 1998, the Court ordered them to hire services of counsel. 5. Thus, Atty. Nye Orquillas (Orquillas, for brevily) appeared as the counsel of LRC P-405 petitioners spouses Alfredo and Florentina Trinidad. But instead of asking the Court to cancel the adverse claim, to make clean their title, Atty. Orquillas, in bad faith, with badges of fraud, and with greatest malice, for money and / or attorneys fees, did, unlawfully and feloniously, file a Motion to Dismiss not only a) the collection or sum of money supplemental case filed by undersigned against the Trinidads, but, surprisingly, and without any valid ground, Atty. Orquillas even moved b) to dismiss both the above twin cases filed by undersigned, on the sole and non-existent / false ground of nonpayment of docket fees. Copy of Atty. Orquillas 10 pages Motion to Dismiss dated 1 December, 2004, is attached as Annex D hereof. 6. Atty. Orquillas deceived Judge Floro, inter alia, by submitting as his Motions Annexes, Certificates of (alleged by him) required docket fees: which he alleged must have been paid by undersigned: a) P 103,156 and b) P 94,278 inter alia. Copies of the Office of Clerk of Court, RTC, Malolos, Bulacan, assessment of docket fees for the above-twin cases are attached as Annexes D-1 and D-2 hereof. Despite oral and 27-pages 13 December 2004 OPPOSITION (Annex D-3) by undersigned, the lower court/respondent Judge Thelma, on February 24, 2004, dismissed these twin cases due to alleged non-payment of docket fees: a) undersigneds October, 1998 Amended Verified Complaint b) undersigneds LRC Petition and c) the supplemental pleading dated October 25, 2004. Copy of the Court dismissal order is attached as Annex E hereof.

7. Undersigned filed 37pages Urgent Motion to Reconsider dated 22 May 2005 (Annex E-1 hereof), insisting on the payment of correct docket fees. At the hearing however, respondent Judge Thelma in open Court, asked the parties, that she be allowed to UNLOAD these cases, since, according to her, her court became a family court. Judge Floro vehemently objected, since, the Circulars and rules expressly provide that Unloading is allowed or mandated only for those cases which had never been tried or were only at the pre-trial stages. Hence, respondent Judge Thelma continued with the case and heard Judge Floros motions and evidence at the hearing. OCA IPI No. 05-2157-P Judge Floro vs. Ms. Lerida Socorro-Joson Cancer and Death of Respondent Judge Thelmas Husband; Selling of Decisions in Annulment Cases; and the P 2.0 Million Pulumbaret Bribery Judicial Notice in RTC, Malolos of Respondent Josons 2004 2008 Sale of Annulment Orders as Court Fixer, and Broker of Respondent Thelma, in the P 2.0 Million Pulumbaret Bribery / Union Bank A.M. OCA IPI No. 04-2026RTJ, Union Bank vs. Judge Thelma Pinero-Cruz 8. By sheer accident, Judge Floro discovered on 2004-2005, and reported to the Supreme Court, in his filed/decided case, OCA IPI No. 05-2157-P Judge Floro vs. Ms. Lerida Socorro-Joson, the magnitude of corruption at Br. 16, RTC, Malolos, Bulacan perpetrated by herein respondents, in order to raise funds for the 2004 cancer and lingering illness of respondent Thelmas husband. Judge Floro, filed the administrative case, since respondent Ms. Lerida Socorro-Joson (Ms. Joson, for brevity) failed to include Judge Floros case in the calendar and reports required by the 2002 Revised Manuals of Clerks of Court, inter alia, as those cases submitted for Decision on 20042005. Judge Floro also accused respondent Mrs. Joson, of failing to submit the required monthly, semester and annual OCAD reports. The Honorable Supreme Court's 3rd Divisions final Resolution / fallo, dated March 8, 2006 ruled: (against respondent Ms. Joson, and in favor of undersigned, in A. M. OCA IPI No. 05-2157-P): To REMIND respondent OIC Mrs. Lerida SocorroJoson to BE MORE CIRCUMSPECT and PRUDENT in the discharge of her duties

OCA IPI No. 04-2026-RTJ, and g) Code of Conduct of Court Personnel, are attached as Annexes G, G-1, G-2, G-3, G-4 & G-5, respectively, hereof.

9. The Court / respondent Thelma, therefore, made a FIRST turn around, and issued an order, reversing the dismissal, and required undersigned to pay the docket fees within a reasonable time, even if he already paid all the fees. Copy of the Court order dated September 7, 2005 is attached as Annex F. 2006 Supervening Legal Mootness due to Prescription of Subject Mortgage 10. Since the defendants failed to foreclose the subject real estate mortgage or to file suit against (or demand payment from) deceased Milagros Floro on the subject of these cases mortgage, on or before the prescriptive date of January 6, 2006, Judge Floro, on May 22 and August 8, 2007, filed Motions to cancel the mortgage and to reconsider again the Courts / respondent Judge Thelmas ruling on requirement of payment of P 199,000 docket fees. The Public Prosecutor opposed but later withdrew opposition upon Judge Floros submission of CERTIFIED COPIES of 1998 & 1999 Office of the Clerk of Courts Official Receipt of FULL PAYMENT of all docket and legal fees (for these 2 cases and for all the filed petitions, complaint and amended complaint). Copies of Judge Floros a) 6-pages Omnibus Motions dated May 22, 2007, b) 16-pages August 8, 2007, Verified Omnibus Motions with Reply, and c) Court orders setting the hearings of these cases, are attached as Annexes H, H-1, & H-2, respectively, hereof. 11. Despite court orders for Atty. Orquillas to file comment / opposition, he disappeared; he miserably and in bad faith, further failed and refused to file any pleading; he also failed to appear in court as required by it, to contradict or deny undersigneds accusations that he lied to the court, that he sold his clients case, and that he allowed them to loose the case, so that undersigned would not
7

be paid based on the Kasunduan; and worst, Atty. Orquillas refused to cooperate to fight for his clients rights to have the adverse claim cancelled so that the purchased lot / title would be made quiet; Copies of the OCC issued official receipts of full payment of docket and all legal fees by Judge Floro, are attached and marked collectively, as Annex B-3. Modus Operandi: Another Sham and False Motion to Dismiss Judge Floros cases allegedly due to non-payment of Privilege Tax Receipts by Judge Floro 12. Respondents Judge Thelma and Ms. Joson, conspired with Atty. Irineo E. Guardiano, 80 years old (new counsel of another defendants in these cases spouses Mariano and Ligaya Blancos new and third counsel; their first lawyer, Atty. Rafael Santos, died in 2000, while their second counsel-of-record, Atty. Donato Mabbayad resigned) --- a) to delay these 10 years cases, and to make it appear, that b) respondents would rectify the grave INJUSTICES to Judge Floro by denying the sham and false motion. Copies of a) Atty. Irineo E. Guardianos / defendants Blancos 3 pages Motion to Dismiss dated / filed on 3, 7 December, 2008, b) Judge Floros 16-pages Opposition dated, filed on 4, 17, December, 2008, and c) Court order setting the hearing of these cases, are attached as Annexes I, I-1 and I-2, respectively, hereof. The instant A.M. OCA IPI No. 08-2854-RTJ complaint / case, endorsed by Br. 14, RTC, Malolos Bulacan, Executive Judge Petrita Braga Dime The supervening event of Judge Floros accidental and destined discovery of the P 80,000 pay-off and bribery committed by co-conspirators Alfred Trinidad and respondents Judge Thelma and Ms. Joson. 13. Judge Floro, during the 2nd to the last quarter of 2007, found that herein LRC Petitioners spouses Alfredo and Florentina Trinidads son Alfred Trinidad blocked the right-of-way common to the subject lots of these cases, by his fighting cocks and cock houses, which made it so dirty and muddy or impassable. At Meycauayan, Bulacan Jollibee afternoon meeting, Alfred Trinidad offered to Judge Floro, per his secretary, Ms. Belen Gomez, settlement, thusly: he would remove the nuisance, on the condition of full
8

payment by Judge Floro, of P 80,000, reduced to P 60,000, which Alfred admitted as 2005 GASTOS SA CASO, or bribe cash moneys he paid to respondent Mrs. Joson, for Judge Thelma (so that these cases would be delayed by respondents Judge Thelma and Ms. Joson, in consideration of the 2005 dismissal of Judge Floros cases, so that the Trinidads, would no longer pay Judge Floro the amount they are obliged to pay, based on the duly admitted Exh. H, KASUNDUAAN dated March 30, 2008). 14. Additional condition of the bribe money was: Judge Floro would eventually loose by technicalities, so that even if Judge Floro would appeal the cases to the higher courts, it would eventually take many long years, and the Trinidads would be spared from paying the sums due to Judge Floro based on the admitted Exhibit / contract. 15. This supervening discovery of bribery, caused Judge Floros immediate filing of a) the Writ of Amparo Case CA-G.R. SP No. 00015, on January 30, 2008, b) the 5-pages Letter-Complaint to Executive Judge Petrita B. Dime (now the instant docketed case OCA IPI No. 08-2854-RTJ), and c) the pending fullblown Disbarment case A.C. No. 7897, Third Division, Supreme Court. Copies of a) March 4, 2008 CA-G.R. SP No. 00015 Resolution in the Writ of Amparo case, b) 1st Indorsement of 08 April, 2008 of OCAD, docketing OCA IPI No. 08-2854-RTJ, c) the 7 pages Comment of Judge Thelma Pinero-Cruz thereto dated 16 May 2008, d) 4 pages May 5, 2008 Comment of respondent Ms. Joson, e) 3 pages May 5, 2008 letter of respondent Judge Thelma to OCA DCA A. Dujua and f) 15 pages Disbarment case dated 2 May 2008, A.C. No. 7897, 3rd Division of the Supreme Court, by Judge Floro versus Atty. Nye N. Orquillas, are attached as Annexes J, J.a, J-1, J-2, J3, J-4 & J-5, respectively, as part hereof, and for reference. 16. Meanwhile, respondent Judge Thelma / the Court made a SECOND turn around, reversing her / its latest FIRST reconsideration order, by issuing an Order, as the Court / respondent Judge Thelma admitted its / her glaring and UNJUST ignorance of the law and bad faith. After about 4 years of suffering, Judge Floro got from respondent Judge Thelma this UNJUST and dilatory
9

ruling that undersigned already paid all the docket fees (contrary to the lies submitted by Atty. Orquillas): instead of deciding these cases, respondent Judge Thelma again delayed the decision due since 2004, and without any reason. She set the cases anew for hearing, on 22 November 2007, without any agenda. Copy of the court Order dated 22 October, 2008, is attached as Annex K. 14. Respondent Judge Thelma / the court however, denied the sham and false, new Motion to Dismiss filed by Atty. Ireneo E. Guardiano, as it noted and granted undersigneds filed opposition grounded on the critical fact that undersigned never appeared as lawyer, but as mere litigant for himself. Respondent Judge Thelma / the court therefore, on March 31, 2008, ordered these twin cases submitted, again, for decision, thereby reiterating its 2004 and 2005 Orders, and further ruled that these cases were submitted for decision as of 2004 and 2005. Copy of the Order is attached as Annex L hereof. The April 15, 2008 Partial Judgment 15. On April 15, 2008, respondent Judge Thelma rendered and released the 6 pages challenged Partial Judgment. It dismissed Judge Floros twin LRC / civil cases, on technical / false grounds, that a) nobody filed any rescission contract within 4 years from 1996, due date of mortgage, despite the obvious fact that --- the instant cases were/are in themselves, annulment cases filed by Judge Floro, to annul and rescind the subject voidable and rescissible mortgage contract/adverse claim, and b) that Judge Floros request from Br. 10, RTC, Malolos, Bulacan guardianship Court, to cancel on March 6, 1996 the annotated Lis Pendens of Permanent Injunction due to death of his mother, subject ward of the injunction, allegedly rendered moot and academic the Injunction. On its face, the Decision is wholly inoperative, since, it did not cancel Judge Floros subject titles, but the mortgage cannot also be enforced by the defendants, due to prescription. Simultaneously, and worst, respondent Judge Thelma too late, or belatedly inhibited herself and asked the Office of the Executive Judge to reraffle the cases, to another judge. Copy of the Partial Judgment dated 15 April 2008 is attached as Annex M hereof.

10

16. Judge Floro sensed/discovered that respondent Judge Thelma begged her UP Class 62 classmate Executive Judge Dime, for respite or compassion, since her 2 hands / arms are locked by respondent Ms. Josons a) acceptance of P 80,000 bribe money for her husbands hospital bill in 2004, and b) multiple sales annulment orders and decisions since 2004, plus c) the 2004-5 P 2.0 million Pulumbaret pay-off with about one year P 100,000 monthly windfalls duly paid to both respondents, to the damage and prejudice of the Union Bank, inter alia, and/or other victims of respondents, as predators of INJUSTICE, due to lust and greed for money. Judge Floro uncovered this magnitude of corruption, when he went to the subject of those administrative/civil cases, the Maunlad I and II Malls, Malolos, Bulacan, wherein, the tenant/s complained to him, about the system of corruption perpetrated by respondent Ms. Joson for respondent Judge Thelma. Copy of the Supreme Court ruling which dismissed the administrative case against Judge Thelma is attached as Annex G-5. GREEDY BUT HONORABLE: Petition to Create a Fact-Finding Team, to Submit a Report to the Supreme Court through the Office of ACA Antonio Dujua regarding the Judicial Notice of Respodent Ms. Josons Continuous Fixing of Annulment of Marriage Cases at Br. 16, RTC, Malolos 17. By 2nd sheer accident, Judge Floro was informed on the evening of May 24, 2008, in front of Access Avenue, Malolos Internet Caf, by Jane Doe, a female court staff of Br. 80, RTC, Malolos, Bulacan (formerly with Br. 8, and later with OCC, RTC, Malolos), of the immense corruption per selling annulment of marriage cases orders and Decisions, as fixer or broker of respondent Judge Thelma, since 2004, and this critical fact of corruption was and is of JUDICIAL NOTICE at Malolos, such that 90% of lawyers, if asked in confidence, would confirm Jane Does statement to Judge Floro. RESERVATION is duly made at this point, of Judge Floros right to present evidence at the OCAD hearing of this case, on the bribery issues, inter alia.

11

18. Because of the carefully planned MODUS OPRANDI, Judge Floro, upon receipt of the Partial Judgment, on April 17, Friday, 2008, forthwith, on Saturday, April 18, 2008, filed 2-pages handwritten Petition (to annul the a) inhibition order of Judge Thelma, and b) the order of Judge Dime for re-raffle, and c) to transmit back all the records to respondent Judge Thelma for final closure of all incidents. The Office of Vice-Executive Judges Herminia Pasamba and Renato Francisco acted and GRANTED Judge Floros Petition, reversing the April 16, 2008, 1/8 page approval initial/Order of Executive Judge Petrita B. Dime who was on leave due to cancer medication at USA. Copy of Exec. Judge H. Pasambas April 24, 2008 Order is attached as Annex N. 19. Accordingly, Judge Floro timely and forthwith filed his a) 18-pages April 21//22, 2008 Verified Motion For Reconsideration of the Partial Judgment and to Annul the Voluntary Inhibition so that Judge Thelma can Rectify the INJUSTICE and her gross misconduct, gross ignorance of the law, and violation of her oaths of office as lawyer and judge, inter alia; b) 42-pages May 19, 2008 Reply to Defendants Comment, and c) 12-pages Verified Omnibus Motions dated May 23, 2008. Atty. Ireneo E. Guardiano filed his 6 pages May 12, 2008 Comment for defendants Blancos. Respondent Judge Thelma set the hearings of these incidents on May 2, 12, 19, 28 and July 23, 2008. At the hearing of these motions, she objected to the Exective Judges order, and was stubborn on her stance of voluntary inhibition, even if no party filed any inhibition, as Judge Floro objected strongly to her voluntary inhibition. Further, she ruled, that she will not decide Judge Floros Motion for Reconsideration, until the OCAD issues a reply on her inserted query (on page 6 of her May 16, 2008 OCAD COMMENT, Annex J2), on whether the Office of the Executive Judge can overrule her voluntary inhibition. Judge Floro objected to her disobedience of the Executive Judge Order dated 24 April 2008, which directed her, to put a closure on these 10 years cases. Such
12

stance of Judge Thelma is nothing but sheer vendetta to prolong and delay Judge Floros cases / suffering. Copies of the above-pleadings and the Court Orders are attached as Annexes O, O-1, O-2, O-3, O-4 and O-5,hereof.

in that respondent Judge Thelma miserably failed to be the embodiment of competence, integrity, and independence; (due to her ardent desire and lust for

15

money and financial gain); she did not behave to promote public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the judiciary; she failed to follow the strict mandates of Rules 138, Rules of Court, and the Bill of Rights, RULE OF LAW, and due process. b. conducts unbecoming of a lawyer, gross ignorance of the law, gross misconduct, as an officer of the court and member of the Bar / legal profession, to wit: Respondent Thelma, with malice and bad faith, due to lust for money, and corrupt or evil motives, conspired with Atty. Irineo E. Guardiano and Atty. Nye Orquillas, to conduct a moro-moro or farce trial so to speak, for money, and with motive of vengeance against Judge Floro, due to his expose of corruption perpetrated by her and respondent Ms. Joson. She deliberately, willfully, and feloniously misled Judge Floro, by submitting false certificates of services, signing sham and false interlocutory orders and the unjust and patently erroneous decision, aside from requiring Judge Floro to pay P 199,000 not required legal / docket fees, from the Clerk of Court; specifically, she sold these cases to defendants and Alfred Trinidad, for money and financial gain, to let Judge Floro, to have lost the case for quieting of their title, inter alia.

c. professional indiscretion, violation of oath of office and her duty as attorney or counselor-at-law, which include the statutory grounds enumerated under Sec. 27 of Rule 138, Revised Rules of Court (Arrieta vs. Llosa, 282 SCRA 248), including grossly unethical behavior, malice and bad faith in rendering unjust
orders and decision by entertaining defendants sham and false pleadings, inter alia.

These violations / acts and omissions of respondent definitely show her to be wanting in moral character and probity / good demeanor or unworthy to continue as officer of the Court, or unfit or unsafe person to enjoy the privileges of judges and attorneys or for conducts which tend to bring reproach on the legal profession and to the High Tribunal, or to injure it in the favorable opinion

16

of the public. She clearly demonstrated attitudes and courses of conduct wholly inconsistent with the approved professional standards, of having failed to live up to her duties as lawyer and judge in consonance with the strictures of the lawyers oath, the cited Canons and Codes, thereby having occasioned unwarranted sufferings, humiliations and hardships on the undersigned and on petitioner Robert Floro. She was propelled by ill motives and malicious intentions, coupled with greed and lust for MONEY, having failed in conscientiously seeing to it that justice permeates every aspect of her duties and profession, in conformity with the avowed duties of worthy members and officers of the Bar and the Bench. Petitioner respectfully cited the foregoing norms, code and laws, to support his contention that a) the April 15, 2008 Partial Judgment in the subject twin cases should have been rendered and released by respondent Judge Thelma on December 23, 2004 / 2005, at the very latest or least; b) and both Atty. Nye Orquillas and Atty. Irineo E. Guardiano are both accordingly liable with her, under these laws, civilly, (under Articles 19, 20 and 21, New Civil Code, inter alia) criminally and administratively, due to palpable obstruction of justice and delay of Judge Floros causes / cases, because of the resultant unjust and unlawful interlocutory orders which stopped the judgments issuance as of December 23, 2004. Judge Floros constitutional rights to due process of law and property were therefore violated when respondents disobeyed the Constitutional provisions, Code of Professional Responsibility, Revised Penal Code, Rule 139-B, 138 and 140, Rules of Court, and Code of Conduct for Court Personnel, inter alia.

d. The following civil and criminal laws, inter alia, were also violated by respondents promulgation and rendering of the Partial Judgment of April 15, 2008, causing damages, loss, and utter INJUSTICE to Judge Floro, to wit:

CHAPTER 2 - HUMAN RELATIONS (n)

17

Art. 19. Every person must, in the exercise of his rights and in the performance of his duties, act with justice, give everyone his due, and observe honesty and good faith. Art. 20.

18

But the plaintiff cannot recover damages twice for the same act or omission of the defendant. (n) Art. 2180. The obligation imposed by Article 2176 is demandable not only for one's own acts or omissions, but also for those of persons for whom one is responsible.

Art. 207. Malicious delay in the administration of justice. The penalty of prision correccional in its minimum period shall be imposed upon any judge guilty of malicious delay in the administration of justice.

Burning issue Respondents, for money, delayed these cases for 3 years Urgent and compelling - chilling effect on litigants' and lawyers' recourse to the Courts first and foremost cause of extra-judicial killings Respondents acts and omissions have far-reaching consequences, because every litigant especially the pauper and less privileged have to worry that he or she may be forced to pay huge sums or bribes to magistrates in the Bulacan Bulwagan ng Katarungan, specifically to the a) MAGICIANS b) CARDIOLOGISTS c) and Marilao, Bulacan LATIAN fixers, inter alia. Petitioner believes in the Supreme Courts long history of vigilance on this matter of paramount import. Petitioner cites authority: Judicial corruption
On January 25, 2005, and on December 10, 2006, Philippines Social Weather Stations released the results of its 2 surveys on corruption in the judiciary; it published that: a) like 1995, 1/4 of lawyers said many/very many judges are corrupt. But (49%) stated that a judges received bribes, just 8% of lawyers admitted they reported the bribery, because they could not prove it. [Tables 8-9]; judges, however, said, just 7% call many/very many judges as corrupt[Tables 10-11];b) "Judges see some corruption;

19

proportions who said - many/very many corrupt judges or justices: 17% in reference to RTC judges, 14% to MTC judges, 12% to Court of Appeals justices, 4% i to Shari'a Court judges, 4% to Sandiganbayan justices and 2% in reference to Supreme Court justices [Table 15].1

Petitioner runs to this Honorable Court with urgent and compelling reasons: since the filing of these twin cases on 1998, undersigned was always present in the lower court hearings or trials, while all defendants never appeared; these cases were ordered submitted for decision on 2004 / 2005; but suddenly, respondents MISLED Judge Floro, and maliciously delayed these cases for 3 years. If complainant (as lawyer, judge, world-famous prophet, psychic, healing magistrate, a Second Honors Ateneo alumni and 1983 Bar Exams, 12th placer, 87.55%) could not obtain justice in his own town and province, for he could hardly, by any legal means (including scholarly written and filed court pleadings) obtain justice per the Bulacan RTC rule of law, how can an ordinary mortal / litigant, unlike undersigned, fight in the lowest / local courts of law? Twin killing of COMELEC law department chiefs Alioden Dalaig and Wynne Asdala Bakit po ba ang dami ng EJ killings and Desaparecidos? Bakit pinapatay and mga abogado? Lately the COMELEC lost its 2 law department chiefs. It is because of corruption in courts, per SWS surveys of 1995 / 2005: the UN Philip Alston and FIDH Reports, the Eric G. John and G. Eugene Martin Testimonies on March 14, 2007 at the USA Senate point to judicial corruption as ROOT of all extrajudicial killings and enforced disappearances: Recent Events
* Twin horrible deaths happened on / circa the same day last year, January 15, 2007, that the Supreme Court of the Philippines' (logo or seal) was mysteriously burned into halves by an almost one hour afternoon fire.[87][88] Despite different appeals by local and international groups, the spate of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines continued. On January 15, 2008, Reynato Puno condemned the murder of Judge Roberto Navidad, Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philippine_Extrajudicial_Killings_and_Desaparecidos#Judicial_ corruption

Regional Trial Court, Branch 32, Calbayog City, Samar, the 15th judge to be ambushed since July 20, 1999, the 14th under the Arroyo government. On Tuesday, Catholic missionary Rey Roda, Oblates of Marry Immaculate (OMI), 54, was shot dead at 8:30 p.m., when he resisted abduction attempt by unidentified 10 armed men in a chapel at ikud Tabawan village, South Ubian, Tawi-Tawi, South Ubian. In February 1997, another OMI leader, Bishop Benjamin de Jesus was shot dead in front of the Jolo cathedral.[90] In 2006, the Asian Human Rights Commission stated that there had been 26 priests, pastors, and churchmen who were liquidate or were victims of violence under the Gloria MacapagalArroyo administration since 2001.[91] This includes 3 priests who were reported killed just in 2007: Basilio Bautista of the Iglesia Filipina Reform Group, in Surigao del Sur, Indonesian priest Fransiskus Madhu, in Kalinga province, and Catholic priest Florante Rigonan, in Ilocos Norte.[92] * On March 14, 2008, Filipino lawyer Edre Olalia (lead officer of the National Union of Peoples Lawyers and the Counsels for the Defense of Liberties) brought the Philippine case and appealed to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), in its 7th Geneva session "to stop the extrajudicial killings and abductions in the Philippines". Philippines killings will be examined in the first UNHRC session, periodic review from April 7 to 18, along with those in 15 others of 192 member-countries.2

Shocking to the conscience of the Bulacan courts, respondents Judge Thelma Pinero-Cruz and Ms. Joson, deceived Judge Floro, resulting from their conspiracy in the flagrant violation of the Constitution which they swore as lawyer, judge / court personnel, to obey, defend and implement, in the end that they would not delay a mans / litigants cause for money, inter alia. Judge Floro cites the fundamental law:
Section 15. (1) All cases or matters filed after the effectivity of this Constitution must be decided or resolved within twenty-four months from date of submission for the Supreme Court, and, unless reduced by the Supreme Court, twelve months for all lower collegiate courts, and three months for all other lower courts. (2) A case or matter shall be deemed submitted for decision or resolution upon the filing of the last pleading, brief, or memorandum required by the Rules of Court or by the court itself. (4) Despite the expiration of the applicable mandatory period, the court, without prejudice to such responsibility as may have been incurred in consequence thereof, shall decide or resolve the case or matter submitted thereto for determination, without further delay.

party at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel, was caught off-balance, fell, and banged her head against the wall, and was immediately brought to the Cardinal Santos Medical Center, where she was treated for minor contusions. Bukol lang. [It was only a lump]. Shes OK now. Her CT [computed tomography] scan showed no additional injuries. The incident happened after the senator -- known for her colorful language -- gave a short speech for her husband, former Customs commissioner Narciso, and was coming down the makeshift stage. Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago says the concussion she suffered does not affect her "thinking process," only her "thinking longevity." She says she gets "very, very dizzy" if she works continuously for more than 20 to 30 minutes. Judge Floro begs this Honorable Court to pursue relentlessly the truth behind the respondents administrative and criminal acts. These events or Godly reprisals are dire OMEN which spiritually warns that the judiciary could ill afford another similar legal controversy, in RTC, Bulacan. Moral bankruptcy That the judicial order is accused too often of moral bankruptcy with nary an exception is a sad sign of the general cynicism and frustration of our nation. Most unfortunately, there does not seem to be any way of achieving closure. For the process and results of standard democratic and judicial inquiries, sometimes including those by higher Courts, are received with skepticism and cynicism. We have to confess that corruption is in truth our greatest shame as a people. Corruption was / is at its worst, leading to extrajudicial executions of judges, the latest of which is the January 15, 2008 murder of Judge Navidad, inter alia, and petitioners very own former clerk of court, Br. 73, RTC, Malabon, former PAO and incumbent Malolos, Bulacan Fiscal Julio Taloma, who was gunned down in Petitioners home town, Meycauayan, Bulacan, on 2005. Same old problems They are the same old problems, or variations of them, which have been plaguing our nation and Bulacan for years on end, through successive political and judicial administrations. Nothing or very little seems to have been done

24

about them. In them we see the all too patent subordination of the common good to private good. Putting oneself before the interests of the general public had been the basic fault in the countrys political and judicial culture. AND CORRUPTION cannot be punished except by entrapment, since this is our rules on evidence and criminal law procedures requirements. A final word. On April 7, 2006, after 7 long years of sufferings due to the July 20,1999 longest suspension in world history, I became and is now jobless in pretend world. On April 15, 2008, respondent Judge Thelma deprived me of my only ancestral home lot where I lived since I was born (in 1953 until 1989). In her May 5 Comment, respondent Judge Thelma accused me of lies, and she wanted all of me: my title as lawyer. AMEN.
