The Supreme Court (SC) dismissed outright a petition seeking to stop 354 tertiary schools from raising their tuition and other fees for lack of jurisdiction, reports Manila Times.
During yesterday’s en banc session, a court insider said it was Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno who moved for the outright dismissal of the petition that was filed by several youth groups led by Kabataan party-list, along with students from various colleges and universities.
Sereno argued that the case was “premature” and there was still “no cause of action.”Last updated:
