SC chief Puno orders probe on RTC judge Winlove Dumayas for giving unfair judgment

From News Balita:
MANILA, Oct. 5 — Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Reynato Puno ordered the Office of the Court Administrator to look into the administrative complaint filed against Makati Regional Trial Court (RTC) Branch 59 Judge Winlove Dumayas for allegedly rendering an unjust judgment after the latter reversed his earlier decision.

In a one-page order, Puno ordered Court Administrator Jose Perez to look into the case filed against Dumayas, saying that the judge has “knowingly rendered an unjust judgment and failed to exercise the required judicial diligence to ascertain the facts and applicable laws in connection with the orders he issued in Civil Case No. 00-1122 pending before his court.”

btw, this is the same judge who sentenced Ninez Cacho Olivares to a three year jail term.
