President Rodrigo Duterte has named Court of Appeals (CA) Justice Rodil Zalameda as the new Supreme Court justice.

Zalameda will replace Supreme Court (SC) Associate Justice Mariano del Castillo who retired from his position last July 29 after reaching the mandatory retirement age of 70.

With the appointment of Zalameda, the High Court has likewise completed the membership of the three divisions.

In line with this, a reorganization in its three division is highly expected./ with reports from Bombo Jerald B. Ulep; edited by Bombo Sol Marquez.
