CASE 2014-0044: SANGGUNIANG PANLUNGSOD NG BAGUIO CITY,           PETITIONER,                       – VERSUS –   JADEWELL PARKING SYSTEMS CORPORATION, RESPONDENT (G.R. NO. 160025) AND OTHER RELATED CASES (23 APRIL 2014, SERENO, C.J.) (BRIEF TITLE: SANGGUNIANG PANLUNGSOD VS. JADEWELL)

 

DISPOSITIVE:

 

WHEREFORE, we hereby rule as follows:

 

a.) In G.R. No. 160025, the Petition of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Baguio City is DENIED. The CA Decision dated 7 July 2003 in CA G.R. SP No. 74756 is hereby AFFIRMED with modification. There is not enough evidence on record to conclude that Jadewell’s violations were sufficient to justify the unilateral cancellation of the MOA by the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Baguio City; at the same time, neither the RTC nor the CA provided a clear finding whether the breach of the MOA by Jadewell was substantial. We affirm the CA as to the rest of its dispositions in its assailed Decision. Nevertheless, no award of damages is hereby made in favour of Jadewell and neither is there any pronouncement as to costs.

 

b.) G.R. Nos. 163052, 164107, 165564, 172216, 173043 and 174879, the Petitions of Jadewell to cite Mayor Braulio D. Yaranon, Mayor Bernardo M. Vergara, Acting City Mayor Reinaldo A. Bautista, Vice Mayor Betty Lourdes F. Tabanda, the members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Baguio City namely: Elmer O. Datuin, Antonio R. Tabora, Edilberto B. Tenefrancia, Federico J. Mandapat, Jr., Richard A. Carino, Faustino A. Olowan, Rufino M. Panagan, Leonardo B. Yangot, Jr., Rocky Thomas A. Balisong, Galo P. Weygan, Perlita L. Chan-Rondez, Jose M. Molintas, and Judge Fernando Vil Pamintuan for indirect contempt and to disbar Sangguniang Panlungsod members Rocky Thomas A. Balisong, Edilberto B. Tenefrancia, Faustino A. Olowan, Federico J. Mandapat, Perlita L. Chan-Rondez, Jose M. Molintas, Melchor Carlos B. Rabanes and Mayor Braulio D. Yaranon are all hereby DISMISSED for lack of merit. No pronouncement as to costs.

 

c.) We DENY the Petition of Jadewell for lack of merit in G.R. No. 172215. We likewise DENY its prayer for the issuance of a temporary restraining order and/or writ of preliminary injunction for being moot and academic. No pronouncement as to costs.

 

d.) We DENY the Petition of Mayor Braulio D. Yaranon in G.R. No. 181488, for lack of merit and AFFIRM the CA Decision CA-G.R. SP No. 96116. No pronouncement as to costs.

 

SO ORDERED.
