THE SUPREME Court and the government of San Pablo City signed a Deed of Donation for a 1.5-hectare lot which will be the site of the Hall of Justice (HoJ) in Laguna province. The HoJ will house local courts, a mediation center, server rooms, a data center, holding rooms for detainees, a lawyers’ lounge, and seminar rooms, the SC said in a press release. Court Administrator Jose Midas P. Marquez and San Pablo City Mayor Loreto S. Amante signed the deed of donation. This is the second property secured recently by the SC from a local government following the donation by Cebu City of a 1.5-hectare lot at the South Road Properties area.— Vann Marlo M. Villegas
