Prudential Bank v Castro; A.C. No. 2756; 15 Mar 1988; 158 SCRA 646

FACTS:
Prudential Bank instituted an administrative case seeking for the disbarment of Atty. Benjamin Grecia in connection with his actuations in a civil case where the latter represented the plaintiff. Grecia filed a petition for redress and exoneration and for voluntary inhibition.

ISSUE(S):
Whether or not a constitutional provision has been disregarded in the Court’s Minute Resolution dated 12 Jan 1988.

HELD:
NO. It bears repeating that this is an administrative case so the constitutional mandate that “no…motion for reconsideration of a decision of the Court shall be…denied without stating the legal basis therefor” is inapplicable.
