FOREWORD


Justice William W. Bedsworth, California Court of Appeal, shows off some "roughage" from his salad."

“My hat's off to former-Judge Florentino Floro and his ... uh ... staff.”

Associate Justice, California Fourth District Court of Appeals

William W. Bedsworth, Associate Justice4 was born in Long Beach, California on November 21, 1947, and grew up in Gardena. For the first time in his life and career, he created a law blog, and this is because, he found the case of Judge Floro, GREATEST, as far as the American Constitution and Judicial Department are concerned. HIS Blog is reproduced herein as FOREWORD of the 3 dwarfs' and mystic Judge’s 2009 second Book, thusly:

Judge Floro is faster than the greatest thoroughbred due to the VIOLET lights of LUIS which repeatedly strike at the main vessels of all his enemies

“Judges and Dwarfs Don't Mix -

"The prospect of judges being removed because of their personal belief systems is anathema to all of us.”

“Judges are, by and large, not the flamingos of the justice swamp. Present company excluded, we tend to be temperate, conservative and ... well, judicious. I've been watching this system for 35 years. Every quarter the Judicial Conduct Reporter lands on my desk and I put aside whatever I'm working on to read it. Talk about psychotherapy. Usually the Judicial Conduct Reporters have a theme.

Usually it's sexual harassment. Sexual harassment seems to be the judicial equivalent of the common cold. But there are other themes: bullying people, inappropriate gifts, ill-advised charitable activities.

Courts of Appeal, 4th District, Division Three The Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division Three, is located at 601 W. Santa Ana Blvd. in Santa Ana and may be reached by airplane, train, bus or car.

One of my favorites was "Judicial Road Rage." This was a collection of guys who didn't just yell at another motorist or flip them off, but had them arrested. These people actually sent their bailiffs out, or called the sheriff, and had motorists whose driving offended them tossed into the hoosegow. Not just one guy who did that, several of them! A gaggle!

3 dwarves of Judge Floro eternally guard his enemies, detractors and persecutors, awaiting the latters' painful deaths.

At the risk of sounding provincial, most of these do not involve California judges. Whether it reflects strong moral fiber or mere lack of imagination, our judges don't seem as prone to things like making decisions by flipping a coin (summer 2003) or falsely claiming to have won the Medal of Honor (summer 1995). Nor do we talk to imaginary mystic dwarfs. Yep. That's what it says: imaginary mystic dwarfs.

Until today, I would not have considered my lack of involvement with imaginary mystic dwarfs a great achievement. Until today, I would not have understood it as a compliment if someone said, "I've got some issues with Bedsworth; about the best thing I can say about him is he doesn't talk to imaginary mystic dwarfs." But today I found out the mystic dwarf thing is grounds for removal of a judge in the Philippines.


The California Court of Appeals Justice, writer, humorist, sports lover and NHL goal judge, who may just be the funniest jurist in the land, stops by LawCrossing this week to collect his Law Star.


According to Reuters, "A Philippine judge who claimed he could see into the future and admitted consulting imaginary mystic dwarfs has asked for his job back after being sacked by the country's Supreme Court."

Wow. I'm too old to use the word "awesome," but I just don't know how else to describe that. As judicial flameouts go, that's Krakatoa.

My hat's off to former-Judge Florentino Floro and his ... uh ... staff.

This beats the hell out of anything the Judicial Conduct Reporter's come up with lately. And I just love it. I love it because it appeared when I was right up against my deadline. I love it because it makes me feel superior.

I love it because I've never previously gotten to type the phrase "imaginary mystic dwarfs." And I love it because the guy is APPEALING!

Judge Floro's 3 Duendes

As near as I can determine, he's making this out to be a freedom of religion issue. He says, "They should not have dismissed me for what I believed." Certainly, I can sympathize with that position.

The prospect of judges being removed because of their personal belief systems is anathema to all of us.

But I think once it's established that you, "told investigators that three mystic dwarfs — Armand, Luis and Angel — helped you carry out healing sessions during breaks in chambers," you gotta expect to trudge through a little grief.

Court of Appeal, Fourth Appellate District, Division Three, Dwarf Fortress of Justice William W. Bedsworth The $25.6-million courthouse was built to unify two separate court buildings and provide additional court services within its three stories.

I mean, these aren't just your ordinary, garden-variety, run-of-the-mill imaginary mystic dwarfs. These are imaginary mystic healing dwarfs! You gotta expect the local bar to be a little leery when you tell 'em, "Counsel, I regret that I cannot grant your motion. But if you'll just step into chambers, me and Luis and Armand will use our mystic powers to cure that arthritic knee of yours."

You've especially gotta expect it if you're able to see into the future. Reuters doesn't elaborate on just what the judge could see in the future — or whether Armand, Luis and Angel were not only mystic and therapeutic, but precognitive as well — but I'm not sure saying you can see into the future requires much elaboration. Certainly it made Judge Floro's future pretty clear.

The Devil is carefully watching Judge Floro's enemies endlessly hoping that his detractors and persecutors will reunite with the Supreme Court Justices who are now domesticated in Hades

I have no doubt that if I had told ANY of the lawyers who appeared before me, EVER, that me and the mystic healing dwarfs were gonna cure a little deafness and then go out for a run over the lunch hour and that when we returned we'd have the name of next year's Preakness winner, Davies would have docked me some points. Certainly the Philippine Supreme Court thinks it lowers your score. Although they were very diplomatic about it. According to Reuters, "The Supreme Court said it was not within its expertise to conclude that Floro was insane, but agreed with the court clinic's finding that he was psychotic."


LUIS' castle is more majestic and serene than Broadway Tower, Cotswolds, England.

I'm not sure just what distinction they were drawing here. They may have been saying, "We're not psychiatrists, so we can't say he's gone stark, staring loony tunes on us, but we certainly agree with the doctors who said it." Or they may have concluded that, in today's world, one psychosis hardly differentiates you from the rest of society; it takes at least two or three to qualify for a diagnosis of insanity.

Either way, they confiscated his robe and his ruby slippers and fined him $780.10 And, mirabile dictu, Judge Floro is appealing. I don't have a clue who to. Who do you appeal to after the Philippine Supreme Court disrobes you?

Seems to me, you and the dwarfs have pretty much topped out when you lose in your nation's supreme court. I can't really see The Hague taking this one on. But Judge Floro has vowed an appeal, and, since he can see into the future, I have to assume it's gonna come to pass.

And I'm not about to take a chance that I might miss the outcome of this saga. I'm going online as soon as I finish writing this to subscribe to the Philippine Judicial Conduct Quarterly. Then I'm gonna contact the dwarfs and see if they can do anything about my putting.”

AUTHOR’S FOREWORD

A.J. + P.M
[Ad Jesum Per Mariam]


LUCES VIDEO

Judge Floro's parents Milagros Geronimo Velasquez and Florentino Carreon Floro, 1952

I first saw the light at 1:00 a.m. of November 5, 1953. [My mother first saw the light on December 5, 1925, and she last saw it on December 5, 1995].

From November 5, 1953 until June 3, 1983, our 3 mystic friends always guided me and my brother Robert, as both of us were gifted and destined to see the lights [of or among 90 Million Filipinos], bestowed by LUIS.



Calvario, Meycauayan, Bulacan, Philippines, Asia, Cemetery: October 30, 2007


The parents of Judge Florentino V. Floro: Florentino Carreon Floro, Sr. and Milagros Geronimo Velasquez


It was on June 2, 1983, that they whispered the sounds to Robert. Having fervently prayed to have a glimpse of these lights, I was especially privileged to have seen them/their lights (for split second, only) on March 1, 1986. Thereafter, I hoped and dreamed to see the lights. It was exactly on March 1, 1996, that I was chosen to have their lights (on my 42nd year, and on the 12th year, from their first whisper to Robert).

The Covenant-Dalliance on March 1, 1996

On June 2, 1983, LUIS, Armand and Angel first appeared to Robert V. Floro (mild retarded due to wrong medicines prescribed by Dra. Arguelles to Milagros Floro during pregnancy, 1965), at the night wake of deceased Florentino Floro, Sr., who peacefully died at the age of 79.

The Original handwriting account by Judge Floro of the First Friday, March 1, 1996 appearance and eternal covenant of LUIS, Armand and Angel

Without any illness, Florentino Floro, Sr. died just of cardiac arrest. LUIS promised every Christmas (since 1984) that Judge Floro would, as Robert did or does, also see the lights, would view these 3 angels, would be able to see their castles, would whisper upon him, and would make him world-famous or immortal in world history by means of these lights.

Dwarf cats urge readers to slowly read this Book to gain dwarf wisdom

From March 1, 1996 until this date, I had seen their lights during more than 720 midnights. I saw these glimmering, flashing colorless, colorful, and mysterious lights. About the last quarter of 1998, I saw a vision: I was about to lay my hands upon another… On several occasions … and at 12 noon of September 3, 1998, Dr. George So, psychiatrist, assistant of Dr. Pacita Salceda-Ramos, of Makati Medical Center, saw the phenomenal changing of the red colors of my right hand.

Ontslag voor rechter die dwergen om raad vroeg

On April 2, 1999, Good Friday, at 9:07 p.m., Las Vegas Restaurant, Banaue, Poblacion, Ifugao, my right hand became extremely hot, as I wrote the 29-pages memorandum – “Luces Video”. On April 30, 1999 [RTC, Br. 73, Malabon, my Chambers], I first laid my hands upon another…

In this first phase of the exercise of the gift of changing the form and substance of a human body by release of light (definition of Healing), my right hand emitted the extreme heat that penetrated a person's body parts which were disintegrating (malfunction, on our terms). I did use this privilege until May 18, 1999, when my right hand stopped releasing heat.



Superman Judge Floro imprecates by Biblical curse all his enemies, detractors and persecutors

On first Thursday, June 3, 1999, at exactly 6:05 – 6:07 a.m., in mystic trance-ecstasy, I spoke the 2 essential words (for more than 5 times) – AMEN … JESUS …; simultaneously, I saw the vision of the oil being poured to … I received the gift of spiritual healing.

On First Friday, June 4, 1999, or on the 16th year from June 4, 1983, when they whispered the words, I offered the oil, laid my hands with the coconut oil per the 2 words, upon another, at Bustos Dam, Angat, Bulacan, at 8:00 pm. This second phase of the privilege started with a sole message of "Genuine Reconciliation."


3 Floro Duendes

It was on June 2, 1983, at the wake of my father, Florentino, Sr. that LUIS, Armand and Angel first appeared to my brother Robert V. Floro at the back of our house at Calvario, Meycauayan, Bulacan, Philippines. I brought Robert to our Psychology Department Chair, Ateneo De Manila, Fr. Jaime Bulatao, S.J. about November, 1984, to have been tested on his dwarf claims. Fr. Bulatao tested him and they traveled to the castle of LUIS.

After Deleuze, Judge Floro's enemies are now in dire pain, and LUIS jumps with joy!

The Jesuit priest informed me that “subjectively-objectively” it is true (but he was not able to see LUIS and Armand, while Robert was able to see Father’s dwarf he named “dwendeling”). From 1984 until 1999, I have had great FAITH in these Philippine creatures, as I offered them food and drinks, daily or Fridays to remember them.

It was on First Friday, March 1, 1996, midnight, that LUIS and Armand first appeared to me in VISION: they told me their names and promised me lifetime DALLIANCE, covenant, protection and friendship. More important is the covenant’s prophecy by LUIS – that I and these 3 mystic dwarves would be known worldwide.

The Floro Gavel: 'Mystic dwarves' judge loses job

On April 7, 2006, the birthday of Angel (their sister, whom I just saw on August, 2009), I and these 3 angels of the Lord caught unprecedented global sympathy, compassion and attention: from obscurity, we became world-famous and IMMORTAL in the indelible memory of world history.

Since June 3, 1983, when LUIS and Armand appeared to my brother Robert, and since LUIS promised that he would appear to me (1984 Christmas promise), it was only on January 8, 2008 (or 24 years thereafter) that LUIS fulfilled his covenant: he appeared to me in IMAX yellow light virtual reality fashion. It was for real.

THIS BOOK is written for the sole purpose of sharing to the world, their mission of exorcising the corrupt Philippine judiciary, to fight evil and promote spiritual repentance through the highest violet and white LIGHTS of LUIS, the King of kings of elementals worldwide.


Sacked 'psychic' judge wants job back: Judge Fired For Consulting Mystic Dwarves

This book is likewise published for believers and infidels alike, who for REASONS, would utterly have an insight into the spiritual world of the 3 mystic dwarves vis-à-vis the broken world of materialism and the true-to-life world of HYPOCRISY, ANGER, HATRED and VENGEANCE in our own Philippine Judicial Department. Because of these 3 angels of God, the landmark Justice Minita Viray Chico-Nazario Decision became the "object of world ridicule" by the democratic and civilized world – which compassionately defined the essence of "kindness" that I never found in my own country.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Judge Florentino V. Floro Jr., graduated High School (3rd Honors) from St. Vincent’s Seminary, at Karuhatan, Valenzuela, Bulacan in 1970. (He finished Grade VI with 6th honors at St. Mary’s Academy, Poblacion, Mecauayan, Bulacan, in 1965). He obtained his A. B. Pre-Divinity at the Ateneo de Manila University, Loyola House of Studies, Quezon City, Philippines, on October, 1974. He obtained MBA units at the Ateneo Graduate School of Business, Padre Faura, Manila, in 1975, and finished Law at the Ateneo Law School, Makati, on June 13, 1982 (FULL SECOND HONORS) with 10 years unbroken record of 91% in Criminal Law Review. In the 1983 Bar Exams (one of the hardest in P.I. history, since only 21.3% passed), he was 12th place with a very high Bar Rating of 87.55% (which rating had been surpassed by about 4 Supreme Court Justices and 2 JBC applicants, out of 1, 500 judges, 70 Justices and 10,000 applicants, a Philippine record, so to speak).

Your Honor, those mystic dwarfs are back again…

In his first attempt to become a Judge, he filed his JBC Application on his birthday, November 5, 1997. Out of more than 80 applicants to the position (Br. 73, Regional Trial Court, Malabon-Navotas, Metro Manila, National Capital Judicial Region), he was duly nominated (upon his APPEAL) by the Judicial & Bar Council and was appointed by President Joseph Estrada on his birthday, November 4/5, 1998, at the age of 45, as youngest RTC, NCJR Judge.

He took his oath on Friday the 13th, November, 1998 and fully assumed judicial powers on January 12, 1999. He idolized President Ferdinand E. Marcos (whom he considered as the greatest Filipino & the most brilliant mind the Asian Race ever produced). He also predicted that he would be a Healer and aimed to be a Jockey. He predicted on December 9, 1998 and January 25, 1999 his suspension.

More specifically, it was on July 18, 1999 that he saw the vision of Plaridel and 73 which foretold his suspension at exactly 4:50 p.m., July 20, 1999, and he left RTC, Br. 73, Malabon at 5:20 p.m.

One afternoon of the third week of June, 2000, he predicted before a JBC member and spontaneously told Atty. Teresita Cruz-Sison, at the JBC corridors: “xxx You will be re-appointed on July 5!!! xxx”. She was reappointed and served the unprecedented third term as regular JBC member, the "Kingmaker". She is the mastermind of Judge Floro’s 68.9 months longest suspension in history and separation from service.

Mystic Dwarfs: A Dwarven Elemental Mage

On July 18, 2000 at 8:00 a.m. & 8:00 p.m. he experienced the special trance which predicted the Catmon, Malabon Halls of Justice mystic fire which destroyed practically all the Court Offices except his court sala, at exactly 5:20 a.m. of July 23, 2000, or exactly 36 hours after his 1 year (anniversary) preventive suspension.

Youngest Filipino Achievers

Judge Floro was named "Youngest Filipino Achiever" by WikiPilipinas (the Hip 'n Free Philippine Encyclopedia (Redirected from Youngest Filipinos in their Field): * Florentino Floro - youngest RTC NCJR Judge of the Philippines at the age of 45.

A final word. One need not agree that the Angel of Death and the 3 world-famous unseen little friends/elementals do exist and of course, that his claim as the No. 1 Psychic has basis. Nevertheless, this book or memorandum is written for believers and infidels alike who, for varying reasons, perhaps, may wish to gain some understanding of his healing message: “that there is a God who watches us from a distance; xxx genuine reconciliation/repentance; xxx to heal the wounds [of corruption] in the judiciary; xxx to heal the sick”.

Supreme Court Judge Fired, Giving Him and His 3 Dwarves Immortality



A. M. + D. G. [Ad Majoram Dei Gloriam]


This Book is affectionately dedicated to LUIS, Armand & Angel, to my brothers Robert & Benjamin V. Floro, and to all those who, for one reason or another, had been victims of Filipino Injustice because of hatred, anger, vengeance, bitterness and immense corruption in the Philippine Judiciary.

Judge Florentino V. Floro, Jr. –
Will always remember the
KINDNESS
Of the poorest of the poor,
The oppressed, and
All those who are in PAIN, because of SIN.

“It is the prerogative of Spirit
To know the future.”
- Charles Fillmore6

INTRODUCTION

In the Philippines, Ex-Judge Consults Three Wee Friends
Mr. Floro Loses His Job But Becomes a Celebrity; Using a Little Elfin Magic




As a trial-court judge, Florentino V. Floro Jr. acknowledged that he regularly sought the counsel of three elves only he could see. The Supreme Court deemed him unfit to serve and fired him last year.

Case closed? Not in the Philippines, where vampires are said to prey on unwary travelers and wealthy politicians consult fortune tellers and card readers. Mr. Floro, 54 years old, has become a media celebrity. He is now wielding his new clout to campaign for the return of his job -- and exact vengeance on the Supreme Court. Helping him, he says, are his three invisible companions. "Angel" is the neutral force, he says. "Armand" is a benign influence. "Luis," whom Mr. Floro describes as the "king of kings," is an avenger.

Mr. Floro has become a regular on Philippine television. Often he is asked to make predictions with the help of his invisible friends. "They say your show will be taken off the air if you don't feature me more often," was Mr. Floro's reply to one interviewer. The day after Mr. Floro's first appearance on television last year, hundreds of people turned up at his house in a dusty Manila suburb hoping he could use his supernatural powers to heal their illnesses. Now Mr. Floro, who travels by bus, is regularly recognized on the street. The Supreme Court says its medical clinic determined that Mr. Floro was suffering from psychosis.

In the Philippines, Ex-Judge Consults Three Wee Friends; Mr. Floro Loses His Job But Becomes a Celebrity; Using a Little Elfin Magic

Even so, a series of disturbing incidents appear to have the nation's top jurists rattled. According to local newspaper reports, a mysterious fire in January destroyed the Supreme Court's crest in its session hall, and a number of members of the court and their close family members have developed serious illnesses or have fallen victim to car accidents.

Enough bizarre things have happened that in July, the Supreme Court issued an en banc resolution asking Mr. Floro to desist in his threats of "ungodly reprisal." The Supreme Court's spokesman declined to elaborate. Mr. Floro says he is not suffering from psychosis, and that he's not to blame for the incidents.

He points the finger squarely at "king of kings" elf Luis, who Mr. Floro says is bent on cleaning up what he says is the Philippines' corrupt legal system. Mr. Floro says he never consulted the invisible elves over judicial decisions and the fact that he puts faith in them should make no difference to his career. "It shouldn't matter what I believe in, whether it's Jesus, Muhammad, or Luis, Armand and Angel," he says in an interview.

TOUS LES DINGUES NE SONT PAS ENFERMES...

The Philippines has a long history of mixing organized religion with a deep belief in the supernatural. During the 1950s and 1960s, when the Southeast Asian nation was already an independent republic, the Central Intelligence Agency stoked fears of vampires and ghouls to help its preferred candidates win elections. The elf, or "duwende," is one of a rich pantheon of supernatural beings that predate the Philippines' colonization by Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century. Many Filipinos make pilgrimages to Mount Banahaw, just south of Manila, which is reputedly the country's capital for elves and other beings.

"Office of the Court Administrator vs. Judge Florentino Floro"

"Office of the Court Administrator vs. Judge Florentino Floro," A.M. No. RTJ-99-1460, March 31, 2006

Jaime Licauco, who teaches parapsychology at San Beda College in Manila, testified on behalf of Mr. Floro in a 2001 hearing. He argued Mr. Floro is mentally fit and argues the former judge's beliefs aren't so unusual in the Philippine context.

TOUS LES DINGUES NE SONT PAS ENFERMES...

Like many others in the Philippines, Mr. Floro says he himself is a Roman Catholic, and once studied to be a priest. He recalls that he wasn't convinced that serving the church was necessarily the best way to serve other Filipinos. He says he thought he could improve more people's lives if he became a lawyer, and he handily passed the bar exams.

Mr. Floro says he first realized he had the power to perceive Armand, Angel and Luis in 1986. In 1998, he applied to switch from being a lawyer to becoming a judge. He passed a mandatory psychiatric evaluation applied to all prospective judges and was sworn in as a regional trial-court judge in November of that year, handling both civil and criminal cases in Malabon, a district in greater Manila.

In 1999, Mr. Floro invited officials from the Supreme Court's administration unit to inspect his small courtroom. What they found unnerved them, and the Supreme Court convened a hearing to determine whether Mr. Floro should be removed from the bench.


Judge who talks to 'dwarfs' loses appeal to keep his job

According to Supreme Court papers, the court investigators presenting evidence at the hearing said they found Mr. Floro wearing blue robes instead of the normal black. Mr. Floro's own witnesses testified that he wore black on Fridays to "recharge his psychic powers."

The court investigators also reported that Mr. Floro began court proceedings with readings from the Book of Revelation and conducted hands-on psychic healing sessions for members of the public in his chambers during recesses.

The investigators said Mr. Floro would sometimes enter a trance to write his rulings. During the hearing, Mr. Floro revealed his contact with his elves. He also shared with the judges that Luis predicted that then-Philippine President Joseph Estrada would be ousted from office.

Imaginary dwarves cost judge job

Mr. Estrada was forced from power by a popular revolt two years later in 2001 and was sentenced last week to life in prison for corruption. In March 2006, after lengthy delays, the Supreme Court finally dismissed Mr. Floro from the court service, largely because of his belief in the supernatural.

Even though Mr. Floro says the elves played no part in his judicial decisions, the Supreme Court justices said his broad faith in mysticism and supernatural phenomena had affected his work.

"Lest we be misconstrued, we do not denigrate such a belief system," Associate Justice Minita Chico-Nazario wrote in the Supreme Court's verdict.

"However, such beliefs, especially since Judge Floro acted on them, are at odds with the critical and impartial thinking required of a judge under our judicial system." Mr. Floro dissents. He has filed three appeals of the Supreme Court's decision since then and is continuing his campaign on local television and on the Internet. The Supreme Court hasn't reversed any of his decisions after suspending and later removing him from the bench.

"The future is beyond knowing, but the present is beyond belief. We make so much noise with technology that we cannot discover that the stargate is in our foreheads. But the time has come; the revelation has already occured, and the guardian seers have seen the lightning strike the darkness we call reality. And now we sleep in the brief interval between the lightning and the thunder." - William Irwin Thompson8

From The Times - June 6, 2006



I used to be a judge but I'm all right now . . .
The Times – David Pannick QC


LUNACY on the Bench is not as common as prime ministers and home secretaries stung by judgments critical of their policies like to suggest.

The recent decision of the Supreme Court of the Philippines to dismiss Judge Florentino V. Floro Jr as a judge of the Regional Trial Court in Malabon City because of a “medically disabling condition of the mind” that rendered him “unfit to discharge the functions of his office” repays careful consideration by any student of the judiciary.



On June 2, 1983, at the wake of Florentino Floor, Sr., LUIS, Armand and Angel first appeared to Judge Floro's brother, Robert (in the picture beside 3rd brother Benjamin V. Floro, at Acautico Resort, San Juan Batangas, 2009)

Judge Floro first applied for appointment to the Bench in 1995. The mandatory psychological evaluation by the Supreme Court Clinic Services (memo to the Lord Chancellor: do not even consider this) revealed “evidence of ego disintegration”.
Judge Floro voluntarily withdrew his application. He reapplied in 1998, but the evaluation was again negative, identifying problems with self-esteem and mood swings.

But Judge Floro was allowed to rely on a more favourable assessment from private practitioners. He began work as a judge in November 1998. The appointment was not a great success. Less than eight months later, the Supreme Court suspended Judge Floro while complaints against him were investigated.



Psychosis - ego disintegration

It took nearly seven years to complete the inquiries, partly because of the delaying tactics by the judge. In March Justice Chico-Nazario, for a unanimous 14-strong Supreme Court, decided that Judge Floro should be dismissed from the Bench.
In 1890 Mr Justice Stephen became incapable of acting in a judicious manner by reason of mental illness.

And in the 1950s, a High Court judge who lost his faculties was persuaded to resign only when no work was assigned to him. But there is, I think, no precedent for Judge Floro’s unusual manner of opening proceedings in his courtroom. A formal, “All rise”, or even a jocular, “Here comes the judge”, might be acceptable. But not the introductory statement to all those present in court that Judge Floro was “a Bar topnotcher” who passed the 1983 Bar Examinations “with an average score of 87.55 per cent”.



Judge Floro consistently earned Second Honors in the Ateneo Law School Dean's List, 1978-1982 and graduated FULL SECOND HONORS on April 7, 1982 with QPI of 85.11%



There would follow a reading from the Bible, after which Judge Floro would answer questions on the scriptural text of the day. The judge’s visiting card also stated that he was a “Bar exams topnotcher (87.55 per cent)” with “full second honours”. As the Supreme Court concluded, litigants might well interpret all this “as a sign of insecurity”.

What caused the Supreme Court most concern, and who can blame them, was Judge Floro’s belief that he enjoyed qualities lacked by other members of the judiciary.
Judge Floro is not the first judge to have an inflated opinion of his own abilities, but there are not many who have claimed special powers as “the No 5 psychic in the country”.
(The Supreme Court judgment unfortunately provides no information on whether the top four also have legal qualifications and, if so, what marks they obtained in the Bar exams.)


Judge Floro's 1999 Blue Robes: the Living Curse, Karma and Spell

In a variation of dress-down Fridays, Judge Floro changed from blue court robes to black each Friday “to recharge his psychic powers”. He was, he suggested, the angel of death and able to inflict pain and sickness on people appearing in his court (a valuable but perhaps disproportionate sanction in dealing with vexatious litigants).

The judge believed that he could write while in a trance, and he had, he insisted, “been seen by several people to have been in two places at the same time”, a very useful attribute in reducing the waiting lists for pending cases.



Most impressive of all, Judge Floro had made a covenant with “three dwarf friends named Luis, Armand and Angel”, who would, unseen by others, provide him with assistance in court (presumably when counsel were unable to provide a page reference in the bundles of evidence).

Very generously in the circumstances, the Supreme Court emphasised that it was not ruling that Judge Floro was insane. He was merely suffering from a psychosis that appeared to “cloud his judgment” and so undermined his competence and objectivity.
Justice Chico-Nazario concluded that psychic phenomena, “even assuming such exist” (a wise judge never decides more than is necessary to dispose of the case), have no place in jurisprudence.



Though it would, I suppose, be helpful to be able accurately to predict how the Supreme Court would deal with a case, and so avoid the expense and delay of waiting for their decisions.

The Supreme Court let Judge Floro down from the Bench as lightly as possible. No one is to blame as “we cannot condemn people for their faulty genes and/or adverse environment — factors they have no control over”.



LUIS and Judge Floro's mystic warriors use violet lights and ultra-fast magic weapons to mercilessly strike at the main vessels of the Honorable Supreme Court Judicial Thieves and Filipino crabs, igniting cyber fires aimed at all his enemies, persecutors and cursed detractors, so that their loved ones would die horrible deaths due to the Biblical curse

Supreme Court Office of the Bar Confidant Certificate of Title of the Philippine Bar, that Judge Floro became a lawyer on May 8, 1984

Judge Floro “may be dysfunctional as a judge” but “may still be successful in other areas of endeavour”. Especially, of course, as he can rely on the help of those three dwarf friends.

Public and human rights barrister and Times Law columnist

David Philip Pannick, Baron Pannick QC

Many QCs are brilliant — but just a tiny handful are in that alpha-league that makes them in highest demand. David Pannick is one: now chiefly sought-after for appellate work, he has appeared in 90 House of Lords’ cases (excluding leave applications), acting for and against successive home secretaries and in such promiment cases as whether Myra Hindley, the Moors murderer, should receive a whole-life tariff, the Spycatcher case and the challenge over the validity of the Hunting Act 2004.

A Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, since the age of 22, a QC since 36 and now just 52, his influence is also felt through his regular column for The Times Law section. Clients span the servicemen and women for whom he fought successfully at the European Court of Human Rights against the ban on homosexuals; the Queen, in obtaining a High Court injunction to stop publication of her domestic life by a reporter posing as a footman; and Greg Rusedski, the tennis player, at the sports tribunal where he was cleared of alleged doping.

He is also an avid Arsenal fan. Recently of most significance was his intervention for Liberty in the law lords’ Belmarsh case, arguing that detention without charge was illegal and discriminatory - which found favour with the law lords. He is married to Nathalie, a solicitor, and they have two children. He also has three children by his late first wife, Denise.

Case of Kiwi lawyer judged most bizarre in the world – Judge Floro - “2006 Judge of the Year”

Case of Kiwi lawyer judged most bizarre in the world: Bob Moodie shopping in Feilding

High-profile New Zealand lawyer Bob Moodie has been named by a columnist in the Times newspaper in London as winner of the world "award for bizarre conduct by a lawyer in 2006".

"Facing contempt proceedings in the High Court in Wellington, he appeared in women's clothes, asked the judge to call him 'Ms Alice' and explained that this was because he wanted to draw attention to the old-boy network within the New Zealand judiciary," said Times columnist David Pannick, QC.

Dr Moodie, 68, was once secretary of the Police Association and wore kaftans at the time, during the 1970s, was a goat breeder, mayor of Manawatu, and a high-profile advocate for former Wanganui police commander Alec Waugh, winning him a $1 million payout after he lost his job in an alleged fraud case. A practising barrister in London's Temple Law Courts, Mr Pannick also detailed "particularly hot competition" in 2006 for the prize for a judge.

A chilli-hot year for whiny garbage
David Pannick, QC, presides over the memorable legal appearances of 2006

From The Times
December 5, 2006


Hon. William A. Carter, State of New York City Court, City of Albany

In the Manhattan Supreme Court, Justice Jane Solomon told Liza Minnelli and her former husband David Gest to stop their “whiny garbage” of litigation. This year was notable for the quantity of whiny garbage to be found in courtrooms round the world.

There was particularly hot competition in 2006 for the prize for judge of the year. William A. Carter, of the Albany City Court in New York, was a strong contender after being censured by the State Commission on Judicial Conduct for his behaviour when presiding at a preliminary hearing of criminal charges: he removed his judicial robe, walked up to the defendant and asked: “You want a piece of me?”.

Washington State, Superior Court Judge Beverly G. Grant

In Washington State, Superior Court Judge Beverly G. Grant began a manslaughter sentencing hearing by asking everyone in court to join her in a Super Bowl cheer of “Go Seahawks”. She later explained that she was simply trying to ease tensions. Judge Donald D. Thompson was convicted by a jury in Oklahoma on four counts of indecent exposure by surreptitiously using a penis pump in Creek County Court while sitting as a judge hearing (or at least pretending to hear) trials in 2002 and 2003. The judge picks up a consolation award for the least contentious statement by a defendant in a criminal trial this year: “In 20-20 hindsight, I should have thrown it away.”

Judge Donald D. Thompson

Those were the runners-up. The award for judge of the year goes to Judge Florentino V. Floro Jr, whom the Supreme Court of the Philippines sacked from the Regional Trial Court in Malabon City for regularly opening proceedings in his courtroom with the statement that he was “a Bar topnotcher” who passed the 1983 Bar examinations “with an average score of 87.55 per cent”; for changing from blue court robes to black each Friday “to recharge his psychic powers” as “the No 5 psychic in the country”; and for claiming to have the assistance of “three dwarf friends named Luis, Armand and Angel”, who, unseen by others, provided him with assistance in court.

Alternative dispute resolution order of the year was made by Judge Gregory A. Presnell, of Orlando, Florida.

Judge Gregory A. Presnell, of Orlando, Florida

When lawyers in an insurance dispute (whose offices were in the same building, four floors apart) were unable to agree where to hold a deposition the judge ordered the lawyers to report outside the federal courthouse to play one game of Rock, Paper, Scissors, with the winner to decide the location of the deposition. Judicial puzzle of the year was contained in the High Court judgment by Mr Justice Peter Smith rejecting the contention by Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh, two of the authors of The Holy Blood and The Holy Grail, that their copyright had been infringed by Dan Brown’s bestseller The Da Vinci Code. The judge included a coded message of his own — a disappointingly mundane statement about Jackie Fisher, the early 20th-century admiral.

Judge Mohammed Ilyas Khan

Judicial e-mail of the year was sent by the immigration judge Mohammed Ilyas Khan to his lover Roselane Driza, a Brazilian cleaner, telling her she was “real chilli-hot stuff”. She was imprisoned for 33 months for blackmailing a female immigration judge, Judge J, by threatening to send to the Lord Chancellor videos of Judge J having sex with Judge Khan, and another 3 months’ imprisonment for theft of videos.

Advocacy counsel David Breitbart, representing the model Naomi Campbell in New York

Advocacy of the year was by David Breitbart, representing the model Naomi Campbell in New York on a charge of hitting her housekeeper on the head with a phone: “I know Miss Campbell and she is as beautiful inside as she is on the outside.” A special mention in this “what’s your next point?” category for the comments of Muddassar Arani, solicitor to the fundamentalist Muslim cleric Abu Hamza, jailed for seven years for incitement to murder and possessing a document useful to terrorism. The solicitor commented that Abu Hamza “considers himself to be a prisoner of faith. He is subjected to slow martyrdom.”

Witness of the year, Gail Sheridan with her husband, Tommy

Witness of the year was Gail Sheridan giving evidence for her husband, Tommy, in his successful libel action against the News of the World for alleging that he had taken part in orgies. Mrs Sheridan told the jury that her husband was so “boring” that his only interest on weekend evenings was to search through dictionaries to find long words to boost his scores at Scrabble. Legal mistake of the year was by Mr Sheridan’s junior counsel, Graeme Henderson, sacked along with the rest of the legal team after he cross-examined a witness and wrongly accused her of having a conviction for credit card fraud.

Iraqi High Tribunal sentenced Saddam Hussein to death

In the foreign case of the year, the Iraqi High Tribunal sentenced Saddam Hussein to death after finding him guilty of crimes against humanity for his role in the killing of 148 Shia villagers from Dujail, north of Baghdad, in 1982 after a failed assassination attempt against the Iraqi President. The ten- month trial was disrupted by the murder of three defence lawyers, the departure of two chief judges, boycotts by the defence team and shouting matches in court.

In the domestic case of the year, the liquidators of BCCI abandoned their marathon claim against the Bank of England on Day 256 of the trial. In his judgment on costs, Mr Justice Tomlinson revealed that during the trial he had formed the view that so hopeless were the contentions of the claimants that “the case was a farce” based on “hopeless inconsistencies and implausibilities”. He added that a singular feature of the proceedings was that “the two leading counsel for the claimants had made diametrically opposed legal submissions as to the principal legal issue in the case”, and the judge confessed that he should have done more to control the “sustained rudeness” to his opponent by one of those leading counsel, Gordon Pollock, QC.

Governor of the Bank of England, Mervyn King

The Governor of the Bank of England, Mervyn King, understandably observed that it was outrageous that the legal system should allow such a case to continue for 13 years, at a cost of more than £100 million.

The award for bizarre conduct by a lawyer in 2006 goes to the New Zealander Bob Moodie. Facing contempt proceedings in the High Court in Wellington, he appeared in women’s clothes, asked the judge to call him “Ms Alice” and explained that this was because he wanted to draw attention to “the old- boy network” within the New Zealand judiciary. Legal cartoon of the year was by Leo Cullum in The New Yorker. One judge tells another: “My basic judicial philosophy is ‘Guilty’.”

German lawyer, Jens Lorek

Hopeless lawsuits of the year included the plan by a French lawyer to challenge the result of the World Cup final (in which France lost to Italy) because of the way in which the officials dealt with the sending off of Zinédine Zidane. A Russian lawyer is to take to the European Court of Human Rights his complaint that the cartoon series The Simpsons should not be shown on Russian television because it “promotes drugs, violence and homosexuality”. But even those cases have some prospect of success by comparison with the winner in this category, which is the completely hopeless litigation announced by a German lawyer, Jens Lorek. He wants to hear from people who believe that they were abducted by aliens so that he can bring, on their behalf, compensation claims against the State. “The trouble is,” he complained, “people are afraid of making fools of themselves in court.” There is no reason to doubt that there will be many people doing precisely that in 2007.

A chilli-hot year for whiny garbage David Pannick, QC, presides over the memorable legal appearances of 2006

Mr Pannick said there would be many people doing precisely that in 2007.

The others were Supreme Court Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-de Castro and Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez.

Floro was presiding judge of the Malabon Regional Trial Court Branch 73 before he was dismissed in 2006 due to “medically disabling condition of the mind that renders him unfit to discharge the functions of his office." He was sued by the Office of the Court Administrator after his own judicial staff lodged 13 administrative cases against him. The SC found him guilty of seven charges and fined him P40,000 and removed him from his position.

Among the “phenomena" that he supposedly predicted were the downfall of the Estrada regime, the 2001 terrorist attack at the World Trade Center in the United States, and the July 2001 fire that gutted the Malabon Hall of Justice, which he said he predicted on July 18, 1999.

He also claimed to have predicted the inclusion of journalists in the massacre of 57 people in Maguindanao. Floro said in his motion that he should not be held liable for the justices’ emotional incapability to accept his “gift."

Six contenders

The nomination of Floro, De Castro and Fernandez has brought the number of contenders for chief justice to six. The post will be vacated by Chief Reynato Puno on May 17 when he reached the mandatory retirement age of 70. The JBC had automatically considered for nominations of Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, Associate Justices Renato Corona, Conchita Carpio-Morales, Presbitero Velasco Jr. and Antonio Eduardo Nachura. Velasco and Nachura, however, declined their inclusion in the list.

They said this was pursuant to the constitutional ban barring the incumbent president from making appointments two months before elections until the end of her term. Corona, on the other hand, accepted his nomination without ascribing any condition for his acceptance. - KBK, GMANews.TV

Expelled ‘psychic judge’ Florentino Floro among nominees for chief justice post

Expelled ‘psychic judge’ among nominees for chief justice post

By Tetch Torres INQUIRER.net First Posted 20:33:00 02/04/2010

MANILA, Philippines—A dismissed judge who claimed to be the fifth best psychic in the county is among the applicants for the chief justice post. Former Malabon City regional trial court judge Florentino Floro filed his application for the highest post in the Supreme Court, along with Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez.

At the same time, Floro nominated Associate Justice Arturo Brion, lawyers Henry Villarica and Gregorio Batiller Jr. for the position, which will be vacated when Chief Justice Reynato Puno retires on May 17.

Ultimate rejoicing, jumps for joy, happiness and dancing of LUIS-Judge Floro, when loved ones of Justices, Judges, of his enemies, persecutors, stalkers and detractors die, suffer accidents, cancer, massive stroke, spinal cord-nerve disorders and dire illnesses

Floro hugged the limelight when he claimed he was aided in the court by three dwarfs: Luis, Armand and Angel. He said he was the “angel of death” and that he could write while in a trance. In 2006, the Supreme Court ordered Floro’s dismissal from the bench after finding him suffering from psychosis that impaired his judgement.

Hot air balloons take flight during the Third Haikou Hot Air Balloon Festival, a total of 25 teams took part in the event in protest against the elimination of Chief Justice Florentino Floro by the shy Judicial and Barc Council last February 8, 2010.

The other candidates for the chief justice post include: Associate Justice Renato Corona, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, Associate Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales, and Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio. Associate Justices Antonio Eduardo Nachura and Presbitero Velasco declined the nomination. The Judicial and Bar Council closed the nomination for the chief justice post at exactly 5 p.m. Thursday.

Another SC justice eyes CJ post; aspirants now 7 02/05/2010
Supreme Court Associate Justice Arturo D. Brion, a former labor secretary, has joined the list of aspirants for the country's top judiciary post, raising the total number of applicants for chief justice of the high court to seven. Brion was the last to submit his application to the Judicial Bar Council (JBC) Thursday.



He joined three others who had earlier submitted their applications: Supreme Court Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-de Castro, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez, and Florentino Floro, a Malabon judge who got kicked out of his job in 2006 due to a “medically disabling condition of the mind that renders him unfit to discharge the functions of his office."




Endorsed by the Philconsa



Brion's application for the chief justice post was endorsed by the Philippine Constitution Association (Philconsa) and Court of Appeals Associate Justice Japar Dimaampao. Brion became Supreme Court associate justice on March 17, 2008, replacing Justice Angelina Sandoval-Gutierrez, according to the Supreme Court Website.

Prior to his appointment to the high court, Brion was secretary of the Department of Labor and Employment. He was CA Associate Justice from July 2003 until his appointment to the DOLE in June 2006. Brion, a graduate of Ateneo de Manila University, was the bar topnotcher in 1974. He engaged in private law practice, mostly labor law, before entering government service in 1982 as executive director of the Institute of Labor and Manpower Studies under the Philippine Ministry of Labor. - with Johanna Camille Sisante/RSJ/LBG/MDM, GMANews.TV


The World Trade Center (WTC) was a complex in Lower Manhattan in New York City whose seven buildings had been PREDICTED by Chief Justice Florentino Floro, to have been destroyed in 2001 in the September 11 terrorist attacks. The site is currently being rebuilt with six new skyscrapers and a memorial to the casualties of the attacks.

On January 20, 2010, the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) announced the opening for application or recommendation, of the position of CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT, which will be vacated on 17 May 2010 upon the retirement of the incumbent Chief Justice, HON. REYNATO S. PUNO. Applications or recommendations for this position must be submitted not later than 4 February 2010 (Thursday) to the JBC Secretariat, 2nd Flr. Centennial Bldg., Supreme Court , Padre Faura St., Manila (Tel. No.552-9512; Fax No.552-9607; e-mail address jbc_supremecourt@yahoo.com.ph or jbc@sc.judiciary.gov.ph).

Media and the Court called Judge Floro, "Lunatic," Psychotic Judge

Loony ex-judge wants to be Chief Justice abs-cbnNEWS.com | 02/05/2010

MANILA, Philippines - A dismissed trial court judge who consulted a dwarf or "duwende" in deciding cases wants to become the Philippines' next Chief Justice. Former Malabon Regional Trial Court Judge Florentino Floro nominated himself to the top post in the judiciary, which will be vacated on May 17 when Chief Justice Reynato Puno retires.

The September 11 attacks (often referred to as September 11th or 9/11), duly PREDICTED by Chief Justice Florentino Floro, were a series of coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda upon the United States on September 11, 2001. On that morning, 19 al-Qaeda members hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the buildings.

One of the reasons Floro used to support his bid is his being a visionary and prophet. In his application, Floro attached a picture of himself with a stuffed toy dwarf. Floro said he was able to predict the fall of former President Joseph Estrada in January 2001, the coming of typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng in 2009, and the November 23 Maguindanao massacre, the country's worst election-related violent incident.



Judge Floro had been considered by media and the Court as Lunatic. The Ampatuan Massacre, however, cannot be forgotten in judicial and journalism history, as foretold by Saint Judge Floro.

Floro was relieved from the service in 2006 after the Supreme Court found him to be mentally unfit to discharge his duties. He was found guilty of 7 out of 13 administrative charges filed against him by the Office of the Court Administrator. While the Supreme Court said it had no authority to conclude that Floro was "insane," it cited medical findings that he was "suffering from psychosis."



Floro also nominated lawyers Henry Villarica and Gregorio Batiller, and incumbent Supreme Court Associate Justices Arturo Brion and Conchita Carpio-Morales. Carpio-Morales, one of the five most senior justices of the Supreme Court, earlier informed the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) that she will only agree to be appointed Chief Justice if it will be made by the next President due to the midnight appointment ban.

An outgoing president is barred by the Constitution from issuing appointments two months before a presidential election and until the end his or her term. Associate Justices Antonio Carpio and Ombudsman Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio have also expressed willingness to be nominated for the chief justice post on the condition that the appointment is made by the next president.

Meantime, deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez (926-87-34, 926-87-38 Local 343, 344) whose term of office ends on March 3, has applied for Chief Justice. Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo De-Castro, former presiding justice of the Sandiganbayan, has reportedly expressed her interest in becoming Chief Justice. “It was just relayed to me [that they applied],” Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera said.

DEPUTY Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez, whose term of office will end on March 3, has applied before the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) for the post to be vacated by Supreme Court (SC) Chief Justice Reynato Puno on May 17.

Aside from Fernandez, Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo de Castro also reportedly expressed interest for the post. “It was just relayed to me [that they applied],” Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera said, when asked to confirm that Fernandez and de Castro also applied for the post.



Likewise, dismissed regional trial court (RTC) judge Florentino Floro Jr. also expressed interest in the position; but at the same time, he nominated SC Associate Justices Arturo Brion and Conchita Carpio Morales and lawyers Henry Villarica and Gregorio Batiller Jr. for the position of Chief Justice. Earlier, Associate Justice Renato Corona manifested interest in being nominated to replace Puno, and deferred to the JBC’s decision on whether it would submit its shortlist of nominees to President Arroyo or to the next President, considering the election ban on appointments which will take effect on March 10.

Sno-Flo's 7 duendes rejoice on top of each other, when Judge Floro's enemies suffer in greatest pain Judge Florentino Floro

Associate Justices Antonio Carpio and Conchita Carpio-Morales, along with Ombudsman Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio, also expressed willingness to be nominated for the Chief Justice post on condition that the shortlist will be submitted to the next president.

In 2006, Floro, then presiding judge of the Malabon City RTC Branch 73, was relieved from the service after the SC found him to be mentally unfit to continue discharging his functions. The Court ruled although it is not within its authority to conclude that Floro is “insane,” medical findings had said the dismissed judge “is suffering from psychosis.” In determining his fitness to remain in office, the Court considered the report of the OCA that Floro proclaims himself to be endowed with psychic powers, that he can inflict pain and sickness on people, and that he is the angel of death.

Justice Renato C. Corona

In his 26-page document submitted to the JBC, Floro said his application and possible nomination for the Chief Justice post is with the condition that its shortlist will be submitted by the JBC “only to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.” He described himself as a “visionary and prophet” in his application. Floro is a graduate of the Ateneo Law School. He placed 12th in the 1983 Bar exams, with a rating of 87.55 percent.


Judge Floro accurately predicted the Ampatuan Massacre and Haiti Earthquake

SC scolds ex-judge for badgering justices February 5, 2010

The Supreme Court told a former judge that it will throw the book at him if he keeps on badgering justices with phone calls and pleadings seeking a review of his removal from office. The high tribunal en banc denied the petitions and letters filed by dismissed Judge Florentino Floro Jr. of the Malabon City Regional Trial Court, warning that he would face indirect contempt should he continue to ignore orders from the bench.

The per curiam ruling said Floro had no substantial evidence to obtain a modification or reversal of a March 31, 2006 decision that dropped him from branch 73, due to a “medically disabling condition of the mind that renders him unfit to discharge the functions of his office.” His petitions were ordered striken off records, foreclosing further pleadings from him because the ruling said litigations had to terminate at some point.



In the assailed ruling penned by Associate Justice Minita Chico-Nazario, Floro was sacked over his “delusional” tendencies, citing his admissions that he had sought guidance from three dwarf friends whom he named Armand, Luis and Angel. But the SC applied equity justice in awarding Floro backpay, allowances and other benefits commensurate to his three-year service as magistrate.

INDUCTION OF JUSTICE RENATO C. CORONA AS NEW SENATE ELECTORAL TRIBUNAL MEMBER: Justice Renato C. Corona takes his oath as member of the Senate Electoral Tribunal (SET) before SET Chair Senior Associate Justice Leonardo Quisumbing at the En Banc Conference room at the Supreme Court, Manila on March 6, 2008. Justice Corona replaced Justice Angelina Sandoval-Gutierrez who retired last month. Witnessing the event were Justice Antonio T. Carpio and Atty. Irene R. Guevarra, SET Judiciary member and Secretary, respectively.

Floro filed on separate dates three partial motions for reconsideration and supplements, which were all denied, despite the case being terminated and closed to further pleadings. But he filed several more pleadings, including a Motion for Leave of Court to reinstate him as judge and a letter offering to work in the offices of three justices or the Office of the Chief Justice, by way of reconciliation.

Floro was sued by the Office of the Court Administrator which investigated about 13 administrative cases lodged against him by his own judicial staff. The SC found him guilty of seven out of 13 administrative charges and ordered him to pay P40,000 as penalty. Floro said he graduated with honors from the Ateneo de Manila, was 12th in the 1983 Bar exams and predicted the ousting of President Joseph Estrada, 9/11, and a 2001 fire that gutted the Malabon Hall of Justice, except his own sala.

Sacked judge who sees dwarves wants to be Chief Justice

by Hector Lawas Thursday, 04 February 2010 19:33

THE dismissed judge who claimed that he consulted dwarves to see the future and has seen the Virgin Mary in at least 25 apparitions has applied for the soon-to-be-vacant post of the Chief Justice. Former Malabon regional trial court judge Florentino Floro yesterday filed his “verified application and with urgent administrative omnibus motion” before the Judicial and Bar Council.

Judge Floro lost his job because of Ateneo Law School Class 1982
Supreme Court Justice Arturo D. Brion (fourth from left) was elevated to the Hall of Fame of the Fraternal Order of Utopia of the Ateneo De Manila University (ADMU) School of Law during the fraternity’s Grand Ball and 45th Anniversary at the Hyatt Hotel and Casino, Manila on June 25, 2009. Justice Brion, former Secretary of Labor and Employment and Court of Appeals Justice, graduated cum laude and class valedictorian, with a Bachelor of Laws degree, from the Ateneo Law School in 1974. He joins fellow SC Justice Renato C. Corona (third from left) in the Hall of Fame. Also witnessing the conferment are Former Customs Commissioner Antonio M. Bernardo (far left), Utopia Fraternity President Kristoffer Tiansay (second from left), and Atty. Antonietta C. Articona-Brion (far right), wife of Justice Brion.

Floro, who was dismissed from the bench after the Supreme Court backed a medical finding that he had been suffering from psychosis, said he is applying for the post of Chief Justice on the condition that the JBC will submit his name to President Macapagal-Arroyo alone. He stressed that he does not want his name to be submitted to the next “Prime Minister or President” for appointment.



To back up his application, Floro said that he is a visionary and a prophet and accurately predicted in his 1996 book “Angel of Death,” which he said is a blockbuster, more than 800 dire prophesies with “razor-sharp accuracy.” Further, Floro bragged that he had foreseen the downfall of former President Joseph Estrada, and more than 10 years into the future, the twin typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng.

Floro further boasted that he had seen in his dreams the deaths of 57 civilians and journalists in the now infamous Maguindanao Massacre in Shariff Aguak town. The former judge earned a Bachelor of Laws degree from the Ateneo Law School and placed 12th in the 1983 Bar Examinations with a grade of 87.55 percent.


Two justices join race to replace Puno
By EDMER F. PANESA, Manila Bulletin
February 5, 2010, 4:48pm



Two more incumbent justices of the Supreme Court have joined six others in the race for the post that will be vacated when Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno hangs his robe in May. Associate Justices Teresita Leonardo De Castro and Arturo D. Brion were nominated before the Punoled Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) by their peers. Both accepted their nominations. De Castro and Brion are the seventh and eighth most senior SC justices, respectively, after Puno and Associate Justices Antonio T. Carpio, Renato C. Corona, Conchita Carpio Morales, Presbitero J. Velasco Jr., and Antonio Eduardo B. Nachura.

Ombudsman Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio

Corona, Carpio, and Morales all signified their interest for the top SC post, although the latter two said their acceptance of the nomination was subject to the condition that their names will be submitted to the next President. With the entry of De Castro and Brion, there are now five associate justices vying to become the country’s next Chief Justice. They are joined by three “outsiders” – Special Prosecutor Dennis M. Villa-Ignacio, former Malabon Judge Florentino Floro Jr. and Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor C. Fernandez.

2 more justices eye SC chief post
Journal Online by Hector Lawas Friday

De Castro was nominated by retired SC Justice Minita Chico Nazario and lawyer Julie Ann Chang. Both Nazario and De Castro were former Sandiganbayan presiding justices and chairwomen of the anti-graft court’s Special Division that tried the plunder case against former President Joseph Estrada. Nazario, in her letter to Puno, said that apart from De Castro’s unquestionable qualifications as a jurist, her “achievements as a former Presiding Justice of the Sandiganbayan are testament to her skills as a unifying leader and an effective administrator.” In accepting the nomination, De Castro told the JBC that it is her honor to be considered as successor to Puno and that she has “full faith in the rule of law and the viability of our constitutional processes through which all the burning constitutional issues of the day should be resolved in due course.”

Because the big 7 were very influential clients versus Judge Florentino. Brion, on the other hand, was nominated by Associate Justice Japar Dimaampao of the Court of Appeals (CA) and Philippine Constitution Association (PHILCONSA) led by its president Manuel Lazaro.

JBC stuck with Corona for SC post?



BY EVANGELINE DE VERA

IT looks like Supreme Court Associate Justice Renato Corona is the only viable candidate for the post of chief justice. But the Judicial and Bar Council, which screens nominees to vacant judicial posts, is yet to make a decision on whether to submit its list of nominees to President Arroyo or to the next president.

JBC: Judicial and Bar Council regular members (l-r) Hon. J Conrado Castro, Hon. Amado Dimayuga, Hon. Regino Hermosisima, EXECOM Chairman, Hon. Raoul Victorino, Hon. Rogelio Sescon and Atty. Renato Lopez, Jr. compose the panel during an open forum on Judicial and Bar Council Processes at the Leyte Park Hotel, Tacloban City, January 30, 2008.

The JBC received three more applications before it officially closed the nomination process yesterday. Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-de Castro, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez and dismissed Malabon judge Florentino Floro Jr. brings to six the total number of nominees vying for the post to be vacated by Chief Justice Reynato Puno who will retire on May 17. The JBC earlier automatically considered for nomination Corona, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, and Associate Justices Conchita Carpio-Morales, Presbitero Velasco Jr. and Antonio Eduardo Nachura.

Velasco and Nachura declined their nomination.

Carpio and Morales said they were accepting their nomination provided their names would be submitted to the next President, pursuant to the constitutional provision barring the incumbent president from making appointments two months before elections until the end of her term on June 30.

Corona accepted his nomination without any condition. Another nominee, Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio, accepted his endorsement for the chief justice post, but with the same condition as that of Carpio and Morales.



‘Right and truth are greater than any power, and all power is limited by right.’ - Benjamin Whichcote

With Carpio and Morales declining their nomination, De Castro filed a "conforme" to the JBC signifying her interest to join the search for Puno’s successor. Prior to being appointed by President Arroyo to the high court, De Castro was the presiding justice at the Sandiganbayan Special Division that tried and convicted deposed President Joseph Estrada for plunder and perjury. Fernandez was one of the lawyers who defended Hubert Webb and his co-accused in the celebrated Vizconde massacre case.

Floro, who had claimed to be talking with dwarves, used to be the presiding judge of branch 73 of the Malabon regional trial court but was dismissed in 2006 due to "medically disabling condition of the mind that renders him unfit to discharge the functions of his office." Floro was sued by the Office of the Court Administrator which investigated about 13 administrative cases lodged against him by his own judicial staff. The SC found him guilty of seven of 13 administrative charges and fined him P40,000. Floro, in his letter to the JBC, repeatedly said he was the brightest in his class and graduated with honors from the Ateneo de Manila and even landed 12th in the 1983 Bar exams.

He also said he could not be held liable for the justices’ emotional incapability to accept his "gift" with empirical certainty. Among the "phenomena" that he supposedly predicted were the failure of former President Estrada to finish his term, the 2001 terrorist attack at the World Trade Center in the United States, and the July 2001 fire that gutted the Malabon Hall of Justice, except his own sala, which he predicted on July 18, 1999.

He also mentioned his ability to inflict pain via energy transfer or to prevent pains from being inflicted on a person during Fridays, on the condition that the person should alter his ways, lest they be punished, and his ability to see his dwarf friends. In his letter, he also claimed to have predicted the death of journalists in the November 23 Maguindanao massacre in Maguindanao.

In the case of President Arroyo, the ban starts on March 11 and ends on June 30. However, Malacañang has said that the President is also mandated by law to fill up vacancies in the Supreme Court. In a February 4 letter to the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC), the body that vets nominees to the President, Brion said he has accepted the nomination by Atty. Manuel Lazaro, president of the Philippine Constitution Association. "I consider it an honor and a duty to accept the nomination to the Office that we in the judiciary regard as the utmost in honor and potential for service to the nation," Brion said. Brion said it is up to the JBC to decide whether to submit his nomination to President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, whose term expires on June 30, or to the next President.

"In accepting this nomination, I am fully aware that the JBC nomination process is now in the middle of a controversy that has excited, and elicited responses from, our citizens, our leaders and the best legal minds in the country. I am confident that the JBC, under the leadership of Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno, shall fully and lawfully discharge its duties under the Constitution," Brion said. "As a sitting Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, I cannot speculate, much less publicly air my views, on situations that may or may not arise in the appointment process. That is a move that I shall undertake in due form, guided by the letter and intent of the Constitution, once a concrete case is before the Court," he added. Among the top 5 senior justices, only Renato Corona has accepted a nomination for Chief Justice without conditions.

Nine express interest to replace Chief Justice
06:55 PM, February 05, 2010

A total of nine personalities, including two incumbent justices, have expressed their interest to replace Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno, who will step down on May 17. In a press conference on Friday, Court Administrator and SC spokesman Jose Midas Marquez said the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) received five applications or recommendations during the last day of submission (Feb. 4). The first two on the list are incumbent justices Teresita Leonardo-De Castro and Arturo D. Brion, who both gave their concurrence to the recommendations given by their colleagues in the judiciary. Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor C. Fernandez, on the other hand, applied with the condition that "the next Chief Justice will be appointed by the incoming President."

Former Malabon Judge Florentino Floro, Jr., who was relieved from his duties in 2006 for having a "medically disabling condition of the mind," nominated himself but gave also his recommendations for Mr. Brion, Associate Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales and lawyers Henry Villarica and Gregorio Batiller, Jr. The high court’s most senior justices Renato Corona, Antonio Carpio and Ms. Carpio Morales have already earlier expressed their interests in the position. Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio also agreed to the nomination submitted by his former boss and Ombudsman Simeon Marcelo. -- Ira P. Pedrasa


Judge who talked to dwarves wants to be chief justice

By Dona Pazzibugan Philippine Daily Inquirer 02/05/2010



MANILA, Philippines—A former trial court judge who was dismissed for consulting “mystic dwarves” during trials has applied for the post of chief justice of the Supreme Court. Former Malabon Regional Trial Court Judge Florentino Floro Jr. personally submitted his application Thursday with the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) before it closed the filing of nominations for the successor to Chief Justice Reynato Puno, who will retire on May 17.

As he presented his application, Floro made it an express condition that the JBC should submit his name “only to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, that is, not to the next prime minister or president, as the case may be.” The Supreme Court dismissed Floro from the bench in 2006 after he admitted consulting mystic dwarves named Armand, Luis and Angel during “healing sessions” in his chambers. In sacking Floro for incompetence and bias, the high court said psychic phenomena had no place in the judiciary. It also called attention to a medical finding that said Floro had psychosis. In the 26-page application he submitted to the JBC, Floro affixed a photograph of himself with bills of money hanging down his neck and standing beside a toy stuffed dwarf. Floro, describing himself in the third person, said he was a “visionary and prophet.”


Atty. Gregorio M. Batiller, Jr. is also at present the General Counsel and Corporate Secretary of the Philippine Chamber of Commerce & Industry. He is likewise a member of several trade and professional organizations and served in recent years in various capacities either as President, Governor, Director, or General Counsel, of the Metro Manila Chambers of Commerce & Industry – South Sector, Paranaque City Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Rotary International – District 3830, Rotary Club of Paranaque – Sucat, Integrated Bar of the Philippines (Pasay, Paranaque, Las Pinas, Muntinlupa Chapter), and the Ateneo Law Alumni Foundation, Inc.

“He has accurately predicted in his ‘Angel of Death’ 1996 and other editions, more than 800 dire prophecies with impeccability. Since 2008, he had been bestowed more than 21 visions and apparitions of May and the Eucharist with vivid images and unequivocal messages duly filed with this Court of last resort,” he said. He also claimed that he had accurately predicted in writing the downfall of former President Joseph Estrada in 2001, the heart surgery of former Chief Justice Hilario Davide Jr. in 2002 and the Nov. 23, 2009 Maguindanao massacre. Aside from nominating himself to be the next chief justice, Floro also nominated Supreme Court Associate Justices Arturo Brion and Conchita Carpio Morales and lawyers Henry Villarica and Gregorio Batiller Jr.

4 more nominees for next Supreme Court chief

By Edu Punay (The Philippine Star) Updated February 06, 2010 12:00 AM



MANILA, Philippines - Four more nominees for the post to be vacated by Chief Justice Reynato Puno upon his retirement on May 17 emerged last Thursday, the last day for filing of nominations and applications at the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC). The other nominees are Sandiganbayan acting Presiding Justice Edilberto Sandoval and Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez. Retired Justice Manuel Lazaro nominated Justice Sandoval while Fernandez applied for the post.



The nominations of Brion, De Castro, Sandoval and Fernandez brought to nine the number of candidates for the chief justice post to be deliberated upon by the JBC. The four who were earlier nominated for the post are Associate Justice Renato Corona, Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, Associate Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales and Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio. Former judge Florentino Floro Jr., on the other hand, applied for the post. SC administrator and spokesman Jose Midas Marquez said the JBC would evaluate the qualifications of the nominees. The council would publish the list of nominees and applicants and then set up public interviews before proceeding with their deliberations.

When will the dwarves have the First Woman Chief Justice with several chiakras?

MANILA, Feb. 4 – On the last day of submission of application to the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC), two more aspirants on Thursday submitted their nomination for the position of Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (SC). Atty. Victor Fernandez, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon, manifested his intention to replace Chief Justice Reynato Puno, who is set to retire on May 17, 2010.

Gregorio M. Batiller Jr. obtained his Bachelor of Arts, Cum Laude, in 1975, and his Bachelor of Laws, Valedictorian, in 1979, both at the Ateneo de Manila University, then took the Bar examinations the same year and was topnotcher (First Placer) with a general average of 91.4%.

Former Malabon City Regional Trial Court (RTC) Judge Florentino Floro also applied for the position of Chief Justice. He would like that his nomination be submitted to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo. Floro, an alleged psychic, became controversial after he was dismissed from the service by the SC for his conversations with his alleged dwarf friends. He was suspended in 2006 due to mental illness.

Likewise, three nominees were also endorsed for the position of Chief Justice namely, Associate Justice Arturo Brion, Atty. Henry Villarica and Atty. Gregorio Batiller, Jr. There are now nine official nominees before the JBC for the position of Chief Justice, including Associate Justice Renato Corona who manifested his intention to become a nominee without any condition while Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio and Associate Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales both expressed their intention to become nominees as Chief Justice premised on the condition that the JBC shortlist of nominees will be submitted to the next president and not to President Arroyo.

Chief competition, LOOKING ASKANCE By Joseph Gonzales (The Freeman) Updated February 07, 2010



Last week, I wrote about my naked ambition to become the next Supreme Court Chief Justice. Joining me in that quest, according to news reports, is none other than former Judge Florentino Floro Jr., who was earlier dismissed from the judiciary for his avowed ability to talk to dwarves.

Judge Floro (can I still call him a judge even after he’s been dismissed?) was booted out after the Supreme Court took him to task for consulting dwarves during healing sessions in his august chambers. Reportedly, there was also a medical report that said he had psychosis. A google search revealed that Judge Floro claims to be an angel of death, able to cause pain to his court audience, and that he can actually write while in a trance. Well, those credentials aren’t so bad. And Wikipedia says he’s a graduate of the Ateneo law school. Considering my lean C.V., he might actually give me stiff competition.

Florentino Floro: Juiz que consultava duendes é afastado nas Filipinas: Florentino Floro

Judge Floro supposedly attached a picture of himself standing beside a stuffed dwarf. That was actually one of the conundrums I faced when deciding which photo to submit. I obsessed a little on whether I should go to a professional photographer, and hire a make-up artist to airbrush my natural good looks (ahem) to pictorial perfection. I also put some thought into the issue of whether I should wear a suit (to convey that I’m used to a high-pressure corporate environment) or a barong tagalog (to denote my pride at being Filipino).



As my friend gave me hardly any time to focus, I ended up running to the nearest photo-me booth and posing in a simple green checked shirt with a white collar. Compared to Judge Floro, who was reportedly wearing money bills in his picture, my outfit now seems appropriately conservative. I didn’t know this before, but apparently, applicants also have to submit a six-page application
form. Browsing through this form (called the JBC Form – 1), I found many things that one might consider irrelevant and frankly, even an invasion of privacy.

Why would there be a need, for example, to disclose my height (in meters) and my weight (in kilos)? I already find it excruciating to look at the weighing scale, do I have to share my distress with the rest of the world? I’ve also developed a (minor) defensive attitude towards being called vertically challenged – do I have to be reminded I’m less than six feet tall? And the age requirement! No need to explain that one.


Judge Floro's 3 dwarves are more sexy than Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago, Consuelo Ynares-Santiago and Flerida Ruth-Romero

Scanning the form, I came across Item 24: Litigation Experience. (That should be fairly straightforward, I thought.) Then, one of the sub items under this heading asks the applicant to disclose how many cases he or she has won over the past five years, and more importantly, how many cases were lost. Uh-oh. Is the applicant going to be judged on this basis, when the vagaries of litigating cases in this country may not necessarily lead to results based on the abilities of a lawyer?



The next section, Item 25, asks the applicant for his judicial experience. Good for me. As I have none, I can skip to the next section. As for Judge Floro, I wonder how he’ll do on this one, although Item 28 is the question that might really trip him up. This was the section titled “Formal or informal complaints filed against you.” In ominous tones, the item goes: “Have you ever been charged with violation of any law, decree, ordinance, administrative issuance, or regulation before any court, prosecution office, tribunal, or any other government office, agency or instrumentality in the Philippines or in any foreign country?”

Mystic Dwarfs and Judicial Review; Judge Floro and the Honorable Thieves in the Corridors of Padre Faura Power

(Um, do traffic violations count?) Wait a minute. Judge Floro’s application is, like mine, conditional. His says he only wants his appointment to be made by President Arroyo. On the other hand, my application letter states that I only want to be appointed by her successor. Darn. He might actually have better chances of getting appointed.

Nominated earlier were Associate Justices Antonio Carpio, Renato Corona and Conchita Carpio-Morales, and Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio. Former judge Florentino Floro Jr., on the other hand, applied for the post. Carpio, Morales and Villa-Ignacio accepted their nomination but on condition that any appointment would be made by the next president. Fernandez also imposed the same condition.

Elimination process for next CJ starts
By EDMER F. PANESA February 7, 2010, 6:00pm

The enemies of Judge Floro are more sophisticated than this healthy piglet with three eyes and two snouts; it was born in a litter of eight on February 5, 2010 and weighs about the same as the other piglets in the litter in Narvacan, Ilocos Sur.

Amid the controversy over the appointment of the country’s next Chief Justice, a Supreme Court magistrate has thrown his support behind the decision of the Judicial and Bar Council to proceed with the screening of candidates to replace Chief Justice Reynato S. Puno. “I am confident that the JBC, under the leadership of Chief Justice Puno, shall fully and lawfully discharge its duties under the Constitution,” said Associate Justice Arturo D. Brion, a contender for the post that will be vacated when Puno retires in May. Brion made the statement as the JBC begins Monday the elimination process involving nine applicants and nominees for the position.

SC Spokesperson Jose Midas Marquez said the JBC will examine all letters of application and recommendation as well as the confirmation by the nominees which were received by the council from the time the nomination process was formally opened on January 20 up to the February 4 deadline. “(The) JBC will meet on Monday and all of these (letters) will be included in its agenda,” Marquez said.

JBC is composed of Puno as ex-oficio chairman, and Justice Secretary Agnes Devanadera, Sen. Francis Escudero and Quezon City Rep. Matias Defensor as ex-oficio members. Its regular members include Justice Regino Hermosisima Jr., Dean Amado Dimayuga, Justice Aurora Santiago Lagman and lawyer J. Conrado Castro of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines.


Judge Floro, the "Prophet," if filmed, would surely topple Avatar and Dear John (a 2010 American romantic drama/war film starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried. Directed by Lasse Hallström, the film is an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' novel of the same name. It shows the life of a young woman (Amanda Seyfried) after she falls in love with a soldier (Channing Tatum). They decide to exchange letters to each other after he is deployed to the war).

The film was released theatrically in North America on February 5, 2010. Dear John debuted as the No. 1 movie with $32.4 million in its opening weekend, knocking off Avatar after seven weekends in first place. The film also sets a record opening for Super Bowl weekend, topping the $31.1 million debut for Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert in 2008. It is reportedly the best debut for a film based on a Nicholas Sparks novel.

Aside from Brion, also vying for the top judicial post are SC Associate Justices Antonio T. Carpio, Renato C. Corona, Conchita Carpio Morales and Teresita Leonardo De Castro, acting Sandiganbayan Presiding Justice Edilberto G. Sandoval, Special Prosecutor Dennis M. Villa-Ignacio, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor C. Fernandez and former Malabon Judge Florentino Floro, Jr.

Last January 18, the JBC unanimously agreed to start processing the nominations for the next SC chief but deferred its decision on when to submit the shortlist of nominees to the “proper appointing authority.” Some quarters believe the President could still appoint Puno’s replacement notwithstanding the ban, which they claimed only covers positions in the executive branch.




FSGO, law students protest CJ 'midnight appointment'

abs-cbnNEWS.com | 02/08/2010 9:39 AM

MANILA, Philippines - Law students, businessmen and former senior government executives on Monday protested a plan by President Arroyo to appoint a new Chief Justice before she steps down from office on June 30, 2010. In a full-page ad published in major broadsheets, members of the Former Senior Government Officials (FSGO) and business leaders said Malacañang's "brazen and sly attempt" to appoint the next Chief Justice was a ploy to "shield the guilty from accountability."

Welcome and Opening Remarks and The Overview of the Judicial and Bar Council and Its Processes presented by Hon. Regino C. Hermosisima Jr., JBC Regular Member

A separate ad by the Association of Law Students of the Philippines also noted that Malacañang's proposal to replace Chief Justice Reynato Puno violates the 1987 Constitution, which bars a president from issuing permanent appointments 2 months before a presidential election and until the end of his or her term.

The JBC earlier said 5 Supreme Court associate justices, two officials from the Office of the Ombudsman, and one dismissed trial court judge have been nominated for Chief Justice. The eight nominees are Associate Justice Renato Corona, Associate Justice Antonio Carpio, Associate Justice Conchita Carpio-Morales, Associate Justice Teresita de Castro, Associate Justice Arturo Brion, Ombudsman Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio, Deputy Ombudsman Victor Fernandez and Former Judge Florentino Floro.



Loony ex-judge wants to be Chief Justice 7 February 2010

‘Loony’ ex-judge seeks chief justice post

By Benjamin B. Pulta 02/05/2010



A former judge dismissed from the judiciary for consulting “dwarves” in his decisions has filed an application with the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) to be next chief justice of the Supreme Court (SC). Florentino Floro, formerly of the Malabon regional trial court in a “verified application and nomination” nominated himself to the collegial body which is coming up with a shortlist of hopefuls for the CJ position.

Floro, who has described himself “a visionary and a prophet” and once claimed to have been levitated one inch beside a duhat tree while three dwarf friends appeared to him, said he wants his name “as one of the list of the nominees only to President Arroyo, that is, not to the next prime minister or president.” He also asked the JBC to consider five others including Associate Justices Arturo Brion and Conchita Carpio-Morales, “subject to their ratification of the nomination or later consent.”


The Prophet Judge Floro has been contacted by, or has encountered, the supernatural or the divine, and serves as an intermediary with humanity, delivering this newfound knowledge from the supernatural entity to other humans. Like Isaiah's Lips Anointed with Fire, Judge Floro has "Krus sa Dila."

Undaunted by his threats of “ungodly reprisals,” SC magistrates earlier ordered Floro to stop badgering them with phone calls and pleadings seeking a review of his case. Floro was also warned that he can be held liable for indirect contempt should he persist in disregarding lawful orders of the Court. The SC said Floro failed to present convincing arguments and substantial evidence to warrant a modification or reversal of its March 31, 2006 decision that ordered his relief as Malabon judge due to a “medically disabling condition of the mind that renders him unfit to discharge the functions of his office.”

The high court further ordered to expunge his petitions from the records and ruled that no further pleadings from the former judge would be entertained, citing basic rules under the judicial system that litigations must end and terminate at some point. “We wish to remind Judge Floro that the Court cannot be swayed to modify or reverse its decision and various resolutions by inundating the ponente with numerous pleadings avowing ungodly reprisal as well as personal letters/telephone calls seeking audience with the latter, if, as in this case, they are only in furtherance of repeating issues and arguments already passed upon by the Court en banc’s earlier decision and resolution,” the SC said.


Visionary Judge Floro experiences visions and apparitions connected to the supernatural. At times this involves seeing into the future. The visionary state is achieved via lucid dreams and Gifts of the Spirit. Judge Floro is of different caliber than Hildegard of Bingen, a 12th century artist/visionary and Catholic saint, Mohammed (who had a vision of and communed with the Angel Gabriel), St. Bernadette (who had a vision of and communed with the Blessed Virgin), and Joseph Smith (who had a vision of and communed with the Angel Moroni).

In the assailed decision of the SC, penned by Associate Justice Minita Chico-Nazario, Floro was separated from service due to his “delusional” tendencies, citing his admissions in several occassions that he decides his case with the guidance of his three dwarf friends whom he named Armand, Luis and Angel. As a matter of equity, the Court resolved to award Floro back salaries, allowances and other economic benefits corresponding to three years.

Floro subsequently filed on separate dates three partial motions for reconsideration and supplements, which were all denied by the SC for lack of merit, considering the case closed and terminated, stating that no other pleadings will be entertained in the future. In obvious disregard of this directive, Floro incessantly filed several more pleadings, including a Motion for Leave of Court to reinstate him as judge and a letter stating that he is willing to work under the offices of three justices or the Office of the Chief Justice, by way of reconciliation.


The Seven Planes (or Realms) of Existence are the totality of All-That-IS in Its limitless expression of Creation. It is important to understand these Planes in order to clarify why and where our beliefs, programs, contracts, commitments, initiations and healings originate. We operate physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually as part of and connected to all the Planes. Every Plane is working in our body in complete harmony to create life at all times. Every Plane operates within this Third Plane, where we, as humans, reside. The Planet of Floro's 3 mystic dwarves is located in the 7th plane of existence.

The more people who tap into the Group Collective Consciousness to witness change at this Seventh Plane, the easier it will be to shift human consciousness. We can evolve together and have instantaneous healings all the time.



He also filed a supplement to his original letter to reopen his case and to seek a new docket number to his original petition and to designate Senior Associate Justice Leonardo Quisumbing or Sandiganbayan Associate Justice Gregory Ong as new ponente of this “new” case. Floro was sued by the Office of the Court Administrator which investigated about 13 administrative cases lodged against him by his own judicial staff. The SC found him guilty of seven out of 13 administrative charges and ordered him to pay the amount of P40,000 as penalty.

In his 79-page motion for reconsideration, in which pages of stories about himself were interspersed, Floro alleged that the six government doctors who examined him counterfeited his intelligence quotient and wrongfully declared him as mentally impaired. He asked that an impartial panel of doctors who are experts who are also gifted to assess his psychic powers should be commissioned to examine him to determine his true mental state.

The Seventh Plane of Existence: is where The Creator, All-That-Is, ALL of Creation exists and creates all the other Planes. It can be tapped into and understood as the Highest Truth and Pure Love. In working from this connection, we can witness the gathering of energy and how it is utilized to co-create with the Creator-of-All--to manifest spontaneously, to witness instant healings, to change any thought form (illusion) with the absolute energy of love and joy immediately. It is "The Awakened State."

The more people who tap into the Group Collective Consciousness to witness change at this Seventh Plane, the easier it will be to shift human consciousness. We can evolve together and have instantaneous healings all the time.

The beleaguered judge said that the amended Rule 140 in the Rules of Court never included weirdness, healing, psychic phenomena and the like as grounds for discipline.“Insanity is, but respondent has never been declared insane,” he said, noting that his gift “dwells in the realm of both religious and religious belief, free exercise and expression or parapsychology, and beyond the four corners of medicine, psychiatry and psychology.”

Floro, who has repeatedly cited in his motion that he was the brightest in his class and graduated with honors from Ateneo de Manila and even landed 12th in the 1983 Bar exams, aaid that the SC should not allow itself to be dictated upon by in a proceeding to remove judges based on the medical incapacity of doctors, whose claims are mere hearsay evidence and thus inadmissible. Dr. Celeste Vista in her report to the SC cited that despite Floro’s “impressive educational background, there is an impairment in reality testing which is an indicator of a psychotic process, such that, cultural beliefs in dwarfs, psychic and paranormal phenomena and divine gifts of healing have become incorporated in a delusional system, that it has interfered and tainted his occupational and social functioning.”




Among the “phenomena” that he supposedly predicted were the failure of former President Joseph Estrada to finish his term, the 2001 terrorist attack at the World Trade Center in the United States and the July 2001 fire that gutted the Malabon Hall of Justice, except his own sala, which he predicted on July 18, 1999. He also mentioned his ability to inflict pain via energy transfer or to prevent forthcoming pains on a specific person during Fridays, on the condition that the person should alter his ways, lest they be punished, and his ability to see his “little friends.” Delhi HC judges disclose their assets February 06, 2010

Dismissed ‘psychic’ judge gets High Court’s ire

By Tetch Torres INQUIRER.net 02/08/2010

MANILA, Philippines — The Judicial and Bar Council excluded a self proclaimed “fifth best psychic in the country” from the list of aspirants for the position of Chief Justice. Court Administrator Midas Marquez said the Supreme Court ruling is explanation enough why he should not be included in the nominees. The high court recently issued a per curiam ruling telling former Malabon Regional Trial Court Judge Florentino Floro that it “will throw the book at him if he keeps on badgering justices with phone calls and pleadings seeking a review of his removal from office.”



Floro hugged the limelight when he claimed he was aided in the court by three dwarfs: Luis, Armand and Angel. He said he was the “angel of death” and that he could write while in a trance. In 2006, the Supreme Court ordered Floro’s dismissal from the bench after finding him suffering from psychosis that impaired his judgment. Nominees to the Chief Justice post which will be vacated by Chief Justice Reynato Puno on May 17 include Supreme Court Associate Justices Antonio Carpio, Conchita Carpio-Morales, Arturo Brion, Teresita De Castro, Renato Corona, Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez, Sandiganbayan acting Presiding Justice Edilberto Sandoval.



However, Justices Carpio and Carpio-Morales and Villa-Ignacio said they will only agree for the nomination if the next president will make the appointment. With the nomination already closed, Marquez said the names of the nominees will be published for two weeks and the JBC will be accepting comments from the public. “After that, the JBC will determine if there is a need to conduct an interview,” Marquez said. Asked if there will be a shortlist before the ban on appointments, Marquez said it is up to the JBC to make the decision. SC irked by Dismissed RTC Judge

Corona hits charge of unethical conduct



BY EVANGELINE DE VERA TUESDAY FEBRUARY 9, 2010 PHILIPPINES

Supreme Court spokesman Jose Midas Marquez said the publication of the JBC list will run for two weeks in newspapers of national circulation. Following the publication of the names of the aspirants, the JBC will accept comments from the public. Based on these comments, it will decide on whether to hold public interviews on the aspirants. The JBC officially closed the nomination on February 4, with eight applicants.



Those who submitted applications for or were endorsed to the post were Associate Justices Renato Corona, Arturo Brion and Teresita Leonardo De-Castro; Edilberto Sandoval, Sandiganbayan acting presiding justice; Victor Fernandez, deputy Ombudsman for Luzon; Ombudsman Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio; and former Malabon judge Florentino Floro Jr.

Floro has been excluded from the list owing to his dismissal from the bench. On Villa-Ignacio, Marquez said the JBC has directed its ex-officio secretariat to determine whether Villa-Ignacio has pending criminal cases and their status.


Only 8 contenders for Chief Justice

Manila Bulletin, By EDMER F. PANESA February 9, 2010, 11:58am

The judge who was dismissed from the bench due to his strange relationship with three “mystic dwarves” has just been eliminated from the race for the post that will be vacated by Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Puno in May. Court Administrator Jose Midas Marquez said yesterday the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) removed the name of former Malabon Judge Florentino Floro Jr. from the list of possible candidates to replace Puno, thus, leaving eight contenders for the Chief Justice post.

He said the JBC also directed its ex-officio secretary, lawyer Ma. Luisa Villarama, to verify if another candidate, Special Prosecutor Dennis Villa-Ignacio, has a pending case. “Other contenders for Chief Justice are SC Associate Justices Antonio Carpio, Renato Corona, Conchita Carpio Morales, Teresita Leonardo de Castro, Arturo Brion, acting Sandiganbayan Presiding Justice Edilberto Sandoval and Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez.

Marquez said Floro’s removal from the list was primarily due to a previous SC decision dismissing him from the judiciary. “He (Floro) has been separated from the judiciary. That decision of the High Court speaks for itself,” he said. In 2006, the SC dismissed Floro after he admitted consulting his mystic dwarves – Armand, Luis, and Angel – during healing sessions in his chambers. The SC said psychic phenomena had no place in the judiciary. It backed a medical finding that the judge was suffering from psychosis.

This developed as SC spokesman Jose Midas Marquez said the names of those who have been nominated and applied for the Chief Justice post, to be vacated by Chief Justice Puno upon his retirement on May 17, will be published for two weeks after the JBC closed its door for nominations and endorsements for the said post on February 4.

Midas Marquez also disclosed that former Regional Trial Court judge Florentino Floro Jr. has been excluded from the list owing to his dismissal from the bench, leaving the number of aspirants to only eight. Among the contenders for the Chief Justice post are Corona, Carpio, Associate Justices Conchita Carpio-Morales, Arturo Brion and, Teresita Leonardo-de Castro, Sandiganbayan Acting Presiding Justice Edilberto Sandoval, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez and Villa-Ignacio.

Dismissed ‘psychic’ judge gets High Court’s ire

Only 8 contenders for Chief Justice The judge who was dismissed from the bench due to his strange relationship with three “mystic dwarves” has just been eliminated from the race for the post that will be vacated by Supreme Court Chief Justice Reynato Puno in May.

"JUDGE “DUENDE”

Feb 5, '10 8:55 AM, Multiply.com by Biboyski - Wearing bills of money hanging down his neck and posing with a dwarf, the former Regional Trial Court Judge of Malabon Florentino Floro applies to the top post, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. My query is this, when Floro was appointed as judge was he screened? How many cases were decided by him because he consulted his “duendes” or dwarves? When he got appointed why was this habit of his not discovered?

My brother and my friend Atty. Tonson were still working in the Supreme Court when Floro was removed and sacked as judge for consulting “duendes” or “dwarves” in his decisions. Decisions have to be decided on facts, on the laws applicable, or in short the law of the land when the case is heard. But the former judge had to consult not his books but his “duendes”. He could argue that people consult “astrologers”, “geomancers” and “feng sui “ experts but as a judge he is dispensing justice. The lady of justice wears a blindfold, and carries the scales and displays a sword. No, she does not consult duendes.



Floro calls these spirits which he consult as “spirit guides when he writes his decisions, that’s what makes him different from those who consult horoscopes, astrologers, geomancers and the like. Dispensing justice can result in someone losing property, someone getting jailed, someone getting vindicated and how to arrive at a decision should require a judge to study the case carefully. Is it justice to send an accused to prison for say 10 to 12 years because a “duwende” told him so? Or for a judge to order a businessman to pay up his creditor because “a spirit” told him to write such order?

Judges are guided by the Constitution, the laws of the land, jurisprudence (decisions rendered by the Supreme Court), the evidence being shown and by legal ethics as well as rules being issued by the Supreme Court. The act of the former judge in appearing before the media last night is a great disservice to members of the judiciary and to lawyers as a whole.Media should not have covered it, we don’t need circuses that make fun of institutions in this country. He is making fun of us and I don’t find the joke funny.


Corona: Raps on impropriety vicious lies

By Benjamin B.

Meanwhile,a dismissed judge Florentino Floro was taken of the list of chief justice hopefuls by the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC). Marquez stated that Floro was removed from the list since he has been severed from the judiciary.

ISSUE ON NEXT SC CHIEF SHOULD NOT BE DIRECTED VS GMA - LAWYER

MANILA, FEBRUARY 5, 2010 (STAR) By Paolo Romero Dismissed judge applies for chief justice. A judge who was dismissed for alleged mental problems has filed his application for the post of chief justice. Former judge and lawyer Florentino Floro Jr. filed yesterday his application at the JBC.

In an interview, Floro said he decided to apply for the top post in the judiciary because the number of applicants is not enough to satisfy the law, which provides for at least three applicants for the post. Floro, 56, graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Laws from the Ateneo Law School and placed 12th in the 1983 Bar examinations with a grade of 87.55 percent. When he was applying for judge in 1995, he was rejected after the Clinic Services of the Supreme Court found evidence of ego disintegration and developing psychotic process. But due to his impressive academic records, Floro was appointed a regional trial court judge in Metro Manila and began work in November 1998.

Sacked ‘psychic’ judge applies for SC chief justice post

2010 February 5 by The Mindoro Post By DateLine Philippines

MANILA–A regional trial court judge dismissed in 2006 for being “mentally unfit” has filed before the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) an application for the chief justice post that will be vacated by Supreme Court chief Justice Reynato Puno on May 17. The application of Florentino Floro Jr., former Malabon City RTC Branch 73 presiding judge, joined two more applications and four additional nominations that reportedly made it to the Thursday deadline of the JBC. Aside from Floro, the other applicants included deputy ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez and associate justice Teresita Leonardo de Castro. Floro, who claims to be the fifth best psychic in the country, also nominated SC associate justices Arturo Brion and Conchita Carpio Morales and lawyers Henry Villarica and Gregorio Batiller Jr. for the position of Chief Justice.

In determining Floro’s fitness to remain in office, the Court said it considered the report of the OCA that Judge Floro proclaimed himself to be endowed with psychic powers; that he can inflict pain and sickness to people; and that he is the angel of death. In his 26-page document submitted to the JBC, Floro said his application and possible nomination for the chief justice post is with the condition that its shortlist will be submitted by JBC “only to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.” He described himself as a “visionary and prophet” in his application. Floro is a graduate from the Ateneo Law School. He placed 12th in the 1983 Bar exams, with the rating of 87.55 percent.


Bilang ng mga aspirante sa pagka-mahistrado ng SC, nadagdagan pa ng isa February 05, 2010 Ex-Judge na nakikipag-usap sa mga duwende, gustong maging Chief Justice

2/4/2010 11:51:20 PM Sa huling araw ng pagsusumite ng aplikasyon para sa Chief Justice position, dalawa ang naghain ng kanilang nominasyon para maging Punong Mahistrado kabilang na ang isang hukom na una ng sinibak sa puwesto dahil sa pagkunsulta sa mga dwende sa pagdedesisyon sa kanyang mga kaso. Sina Atty. Victor Fernandez, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon at dating Malabon RTC Judge Florentino Floro.

Matatandaang si Floro, na isa umanong psychic ay naging kontrobersiyal matapos itong sibakin sa puwesto ng Korte Suprema dahil sa kanyang pakikipag-usap sa mga kaibigang duwende. Una rito sinuspinde si Floro noong 2006 dahil sa kanyang mental illness. Sa kabuuan, siyam na ang opisyal na nominado ng Judicial Bar Council (JBC) para maging Chief Justice kasama sina Associate Justice Renato Corona, Justices Antonio Carpio at Conchita Carpio-Morales na nagpahayag ng kanilang intensyon na mapabilang sa nominees bilang Chief Justice sa kondisyon na sa susunod na Pangulo ng bansa isusumite ng JBC ang shortlist at hindi kay Pangulong Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

Sinabi ni Court Administrator at SC spokesman Atty. Jose Midas Marquez, agad inalis ng JBC ang pangalan ni Floro sa mga posibleng nominado sa pinakamataas na posisyon sa hudikatura dahil una na itong sinibak sa pagiging hukom. Kung tutuusin aniya, wala ng paliwanag na dapat ibigay ang JBC dahil matagal ng nagdesisyon ang Korte Suprema na hindi karapat dapat si Floro na manatili sa hudikatura matapos nitong aminin noon na kinukunsulta niya ang mga kaibigan na dwende sa pagdedesisyon sa isang kaso. Kamakailan lamang ay nagpalabas ang Supreme Court ng per curiam decision kung saan sinabihan na si Floro na babatuhin na siya ng libro kung patuloy niyang kukulitin ng tawag ang mga SC justices at kung patuloy itong maghahain ng mga pleadings na humihiling na repasuhin ng Korte Suprema ang desisyon nito ng sibakin siya sa pwesto.

9 vie for chief justice post
7 nominees for SC chief post

Thursday, February 4, 2010 AN ASSOCIATE Justice of the Supreme Court (SC), a deputy Ombudsman, and a dismissed judge are the three new additions to the list of nominees who vied for the soon-to-be vacant position of chief justice. As the Judicial and Bar Council (JBC) officially closed off the nomination process Thursday, Associate Justice Teresita Leonardo-de Castro, Deputy Ombudsman for Luzon Victor Fernandez, and dismissed Malabon judge Florentino Floro Jr. beat the deadline for submission of their application for the post. Floro was presiding judge of branch 73 of the Malabon regional trial court but was dismissed in 2006 due to “medically disabling condition of the mind that renders him unfit to discharge the functions of his office.”

He was sued by the Office of the Court Administrator which investigated about 13 administrative cases lodged against him by his own judicial staff. The SC found him guilty of seven out of 13 administrative charges and ordered him to pay the amount of P40,000 as penalty. Floro, who has repeatedly cited in his motion that was he the brightest in his class and graduated with honors from Ateneo de Manila and even landed 12th in the 1983 Bar exams, said the SC should not allow itself to be dictated upon by in a proceeding to remove judges based on the medical incapacity of doctors, whose claims are mere hearsay evidence and thus inadmissible. He said he could not be held liable for the justices’ emotional incapability to accept his “gift” with empirical certainty. Among the “phenomena” that he supposedly predicted were the failure of former President Joseph Estrada to finish his term, the 2001 terrorist attack at the World Trade Center in the United States and the July 2001 fire that gutted the Malabon Hall of Justice, except his own sala, which he predicted on July 18, 1999.

Floro also mentioned his ability to inflict pain via energy transfer or to prevent forthcoming pains on a specific person during Fridays, on the condition that the person should alter his ways, lest they be punished, and his ability to see his dwarf friends. He further claimed to have predicted the death of journalists in the November 23 Maguindanao massacre. (JCV/Sunnex)

Ex-Manila judge with dwarves as pals wants to be chief justice By MBJ on February 14, 2010

Even if I prophesied the world record death of 34 journalists massacred in just one day in Ampatuan or Maguindanao Massacre, via written pleading before the Court last 2007 praying for the consecration and enthronement of Our Lady of Fatima and Holy Eucharist, I repeatedly told the Supreme Court last February and March this year, that the curse I published persisted upon journalists:

A Third Filipino Journalist Is Killed By CARLOS H. CONDE Published: June 20, 2010

MANILA — Less than a week after the successive killings of two radio broadcasters, a reporter for a newspaper in the southern Philippineswas shot dead on Saturday evening, officials and colleagues said on Sunday.
Nestor Bedolido, a reporter for the weekly tabloid The Kastigador in Digos City, was buying cigarettes from a roadside vendor when a gunman approached and shot him six times.



Mr. Bedolido’s killing brought to 140 the number of Filipino journalists killed since democracy was restored in the Philippines in 1986. Of that number, 107 occurred in the last nine years, during the administration of President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, who will leave office on June 30.

Last Wednesday, Jovelito Agustin, a broadcaster for DZJC Aksyon Radio in Laoag City, in the north, was shot and killed while on his way home.

Less than 24 hours before Mr. Agustin’s death, Desiderio Camangyan, a radio commentator known for his searing criticism of corruption and illegal logging, was gunned down onstage while emceeing an amateur singing contest.
