After calling the Supreme Court a “court of no resort” for upholding the legality of martial law extension in Mindanao, Rep. Edcel Lagman of Albay said yesterday he and his opposition colleagues would file an appeal.

Lagman said they would file a motion for reconsideration (MR) “to document the flawed, erroneous and biased rationalizations of the majority of the justices.”

He had earlier said he was not keen on appealing the SC decision. With the ruling, the SC “is no longer a court of last resort but a court of no resort,” he said on Tuesday shortly after the decision was announced. = The Philippine Star
