Mr. Chiang in turn sells this land to Modina which are all evidenced by deed of sale. Modina then filed Complaint for Recovery of Possession with Damages before the Regional Trial Court of Iloilo City. On the other hand, Merlinda, the wife of Ramon, presented also a complaint which is to make the deed of sale between her husband and Modina null and void. ISSUE: The first issue raised was that whether the sale of the parcel of land should be nullified or not. Second is that whether the petitioner, Modina, was a purchaser in good faith or not. Third is whether the decision of the trial court was in excess of jurisdiction or the court's acting beyond the limits of its power; and lastly whether or not only three-fourths of subject lots should be returned to the private respondent. RULING: The court declares the sale of land between Chiang and Modina as null and void. This is because under Art. 1490, husband and wife are prohibited to sell properties to each other. Not being the owner of the land, Ramon Chiang cannot sell the land to Modina. The sale by Ramon Chiang in favor of Modina is, likewise, void and inexistent. As for the second issue, the court concluded that Modina is not a purchaser in good faith. It was found that there were circumstances known to Modina which rendered their......

Blg. 22 and estafa under Article 315, par. 4, no. 2 (d) of the Revised Penal Code, and 2) the Resolution dated January 12, 1993 affirming the resolution of the City Prosecutor of Quezon City finding a prima facie case in I.S. No. 92-926 for violation of B.P. Blg. 22 and estafa filed by respondent AFP-Mutual Benefit Association, Inc. (AFP-MBAI, for brevity) against petitioner Reyes. III. RULINGS Novation is the extinction of an obligation through the creation of a new one which substitutes the old one. Thus, for a novation to take place, the following requisites are needed to be fulfilled: 1. There must be a previous valid obligation, 2. There must be an agreement of the parties concerned to a new contract, 3. There must be the extinguishment of the old contract, and 4. There must be the validity of the new contract. In the civil law setting, novatio is literally construed as to make new. So it is deeply rooted in the Roman Law jurisprudence, the principle novatio non praesumitur — that novation is never presumed. At bottom, for novation to be a jural reality, its animus must be ever present, debitum pro debito — basically extinguishing the old obligation for the new one. The foregoing elements are found wanting in the case at bar. ACCORDINGLY, finding no reversible error in the decision appealed from dated May 12, 1995, the same is hereby AFFIRMED in all respects. SO ORDERED....

Nintendo Case Digest

...Nintendo Case Digest – Team Pops BA 170 THR Nintendo, a pioneer of home video game consoles, has redefined how video games are to be played in this modern age. The innovative Nintendo Wii, with its unconventional remote-like game controller, proved to be a huge success for the Japanese corporation, instantly taking the top spot again after almost a decade of trailing behind Sony and Microsoft in the realm of video game consoles. Positioning Wii to become the go-to-game console of hardcore and non-traditional gamers alike, Nintendo enjoys the best of both worlds. Customers find that they can now enjoy playing video games with their families instead of playing by themselves – a new kind of fun which they cannot get from playing a PS3 or an Xbox 360. Adding to this, customers are convinced to jump ship from Sony and Microsoft for a cheaper yet family-friendly Nintendo console. While Sony and Microsoft lose money for every PS3 and Xbox 360 they sell, Nintendo has already been making huge profits from each unit of Wii sold. The Wii phenomenon is not a mere lucky strike but rather an adept execution of the Blue Ocean and the Sumo business strategies. Rather than having a bloody battle with the graphics-superior console makers in the hard-core gamers segment, Nintendo looked for a blue ocean. It launched its Wii console to serve a larger audience – the family. Unlike the competent individualistic gamers who search for intense visual effects and game play, the family......

...payment of their wages and salaries without a valid cause. The complainant charges respondent with the engaging in private practice of law while working as a government prosecutor and for violation of Rule 15.03 of CPR. ISSUES: 1. Whether or not the respondent violated Rule 15.03 of CPR. 2. Whether or not being a former lawyer of Taggat posits conflict of interests with his work as Asst. Provincial Prosecutor  HELD: The Court finds that there is no conflict of interest on the part of the respondent when he handled the preliminary investigation of the criminal charges filed by the Taggat Employees. The issue of the matter of the criminal complaint was pertaining to the withholding of the wages and salaries of the Taggat employees which occurred from April 1, 1996 to July 15, 1997. Evidently, the respondent was no longer connected with the Taggat Inc during such period since he is working as Assistant Provincial Prosecutor since 1992. Should there be apparent conflict of interest, it must be supported by sufficient evidence that Taggat, respondent’s former client, used any confidential information from his preceding employment with Complainant in resolving the filed criminal complaint. As the former Personnel Manager and Retained Counsel of Taggat together with the case he handled as government t prosecutor was labor-related case which fact, is not a sufficient basis to charge respondent for representing conflicting interests.
