Willie RevillameCourt of Appeals (CA) rejected the petition of ABS-CBN to stop immediately the airing of Willing Willie, the new variety game show of Willie Revillame on TV5.

As reported last Monday on a local newspaper, Court of Appeals did not grant the petition of ABS-CBN to impose a temporary restraining order (TRO) to take effect immediately on Willing Willie game show.

Associate Justice Priscilla Baltazar-Padilla wrote a three-page resolution giving Willie‘s camp to answer ABS-CBN‘s petition. The Kapamilya network was also given five days to answer Willie‘s arguments.

It was reported that ABS-CBN first filed for a TRO against Willie last October 4 in Quezon City Regional Trial Court. However, Judge Luisito Cortez of Quezon City Regional Trial Court branch 84 did not issue any decision on October 8 hearing. According to Judge Cortez, ABS-CBN was not able to prove that there is an “urgent need” for the court to issue a TRO before the premiere show of Willing Willie.

In this connection, ABS-CBN again filed a petition to QCRTC last October 15 to rush Judge Cortez‘s decision to issue immediately a TRO before the premiere launching of Willie Revillame‘s show last October 23. However, still not lucky to get the decision of the judge.
