On April 3

On this day in ...
... 2001 (10 years ago today), in consolidated cases captioned Estrada v. Desierto and Estrada v. Macapagal-Arroyo, the Supreme Court of the Philippines (right) (photo credit) stripped a former President of immunity from suit on charges of corruption, and further recognized the legitimacy of respondent Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (prior IntLawGrrls posts), who had succeeded the former President, Joseph Estrada, in office the previous January. Macagapal-Arroyo would serve until mid-2010.
