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

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.

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

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.
