SC Placed Larry Gadon on Preventive Suspension Over Profanities on Viral Video
Controversial lawyer Larry Gadon was placed under preventive suspension by the Supreme Court over his viral video containing profanities.
The Supreme Court has placed the lawyer on preventative suspension and has asked him to explain why he should not be disbarred as a result of a profanity-laced video addressed at journalist Raissa Robles. He was given 10 days to file his comment in a resolution issued on Tuesday.
Gadon’s preventative suspension is effective immediately, according to the SC Public Information Office, and will endure until the court lifts it. The Supreme Court stated that this is “in light of the numerous earlier issues that led to the filing of disbarment suits” against him.
Within ten days of receiving the resolution, the SC ordered the Office of the Bar Confidant to produce an updated list of ongoing administrative matters against Gadon. The Integrated Bar of the Philippines was also directed by the high court to produce a status report on Gadon’s administrative matters within 10 days.
On December 15, 2021, Gadon’s video became viral. After Robles called presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. a tax evader, he appeared enraged.
Due to a disbarment case in 2019, the SC imposed a three-month ban on Gadon. The lawsuit arose from his comments about legal remedies being lengthy and resource-intensive, as well as the hostile language he employed towards the other side.
