Florin Hilbay humours Sereno's butthurt plan to oust next Supreme Court Chief Justice and shoots his own foot in the process


Yellowtard legal eagle Florin Hilbay revealed recently that never-had-been-chief-justice Lourdes Sereno has the option to file a quo warranto case against whoever becomes the next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

Former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay, one of Sereno's lawyers, on Saturday said she has the option to file a quo warranto case against the new chief justice who will succeed her. 
He said that would be "one of the many possibilities" that the ousted Supreme Court chief justice can look into if "she truly believes she is unlawfully removed."

In stating so, Hilbay pretty much acknowledges that the quo warranto pathway used to void Sereno's appointment is a legal option which makes Sereno's removal from the office she now never occupied a legitimate outcome.

The bigger point here is in the childish behaviour Sereno is exhibiting by suggesting that she is considering various options to make trouble for the next Chief Justice. That's not even being vindictive. That's just being butthurt.
