In a unanimous Resolution promulgated on 5 September 2023, the Tribunal summarily dismissed the petition for quo warranto filed by Julie Licup Pearson, et al. against Senator Raffy Tulfo for being insufficient in substance.  The Tribunal held that petitioners failed to discharge their burden of proving that respondent Senator is not a Filipino citizen.  The dispositive portion of the Resolution reads:

ACCORDINGLY, the Petition for Quo Warranto is DISMISSED for being insufficient in substance.

The Motion for Inhibition is NOTED WITHOUT ACTION in view of the voluntary inhibition of respondent that renders the Motion moot.


On 8 February 2024, the Resolution became final and executory, and an Entry of Judgment was thereby issued.
