Even a freshman law student would know that out of courtesy to the Supreme Court, Judge Rolando Mislang should not have issued the order of injunction considering the fact that he was still being asked by no less than the SC to explain why he issued a temporary restraining order.

This is open defiance by a lower court judge of the highest court of the land. The Supreme Court should act swiftly in disciplining the ranks of the judiciary of corrupt and incompetent magistrates, and it should start with Judge Mislang.

The injunction is a slap on the face of the Supreme Court. It is unbelievable, and clearly a grave abuse of discretion. He should be fired.
