SC should leave academe alone

It would be best for the Supreme Court to consider the matter a closed case and refrain from pursuing the contempt case against UP College of Law faculty members.

The position taken by the UP faculty members on the issue finds solid support and is buttressed by the dissenting opinion of justice Sereno. This alone should prove that there is no basis to sanction the UP College of Law faculty members.

Judicial restraint will best serve the interest of the Supreme court. With all due respect, the Supreme Court should learn to choose its battles and to my mind, this isn't one of them.
