COURT of Appeals Associate Justice Ricardo Rosario was appointed Supreme Court justice replacing high court justice Jose Reyes Jr. who retired last month.
As of this writing, Rosario is reportedly set to take his oath before Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta.
Rosario started as a trial court judge at the Manila Metropolitan Trial Court, and then moved to the Makati Regional Trial Court before his appointment to the appellate court.
He is an Ateneo De Manila Graduate and a member of the Aquila Legis Fraternity.
Rosario was shortlisted by the Judicial and Bar Council along with Court Administrator Jose Midas P. Marquez and CA Associate Justices Ramon A. Cruz, Japar B. Dimaampao, Jhosep Y. Lopez,
Eduardo B. Peralta Jr., and Maria Filomena D. Singh.
