“Former SC Justice Serafin Cuevas passed away last night, February 9, 2014. Details to follow. Flag at SC quadrangle at half mast,” said the SC PIO

A Bacoor, Cavite native, Cuevas served as a magistrate during the term of former President Ferdinand Marcos. He left his position shortly after the dictator’s ouster. He resurfaced a decade later when then-President Joseph Estrada appointed him as justice secretary.

More recently, he stood as the spokesperson of resigned Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez (her impeachment trial did not proceed because of her resignation). Cuevas also notably served as the lead defense lawyer of ousted Chief Justice Renato Corona.

    Sad to hear the news. I watched the impeachment trial of Renato C Corona everyday on TV, so I feel like I know the Honorable Serafin Cuevas. Condolences to the family, friends and colleagues. RIP.
