SHOCKING ! ABS-CBN’s P2.2 Billion Damage Suit Against Host Willie Revillame Is Being Revived By CA!



The Court of Appeals just recently agreed revived the P2.2 billion civil suit filed by ABS-CBN Corporation, dismissing the previous ruling of a Quezon City Regional Trial Court.

According to the 23 paged documentation of the 7th  Division of CA, QCRTC mistakenly terminated the case of ABS-CBN against the host because of forum shopping.
“Forum shopping refers to the practice by some parties in some cases of deliberately searching through multiple courts or jurisdictions in order to file or transfer the case to one that is most likely to give that party the result he wants,” according to rotlaw.com.
Here is the statement released by CA:

“The trial court is perfectly aware that in dismissing the counterclaims before it on the basis of forum shopping, it would, in effect, be antecedently resolving the very question raised before the Supreme Court.
The parties certainly stipulated that the agreement would cease to take effect on September 10, 2011. But it is clear that appellant ABS-CBN counter-sued appellee Revillame for purported violations of the agreement committed during its effectivity.
“The conclusion of the agreement cannot be interpreted as a bar which would [prevent] appellant ABS-CBN from seeking judicial recourse for violations allegedly committed by appellee Revillame during the life of the contract.”
Meanwhile, there is still no statement regarding the matter from Willie Revillame’s side.
