MANILA - Magistrates paid a courtesy visit Wednesday to new Chief Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro at the Supreme Court.

De Castro replaced Maria Lourdes Sereno, whose appointment the high court invalidated in May for failing to fully disclose her wealth. 

The 69-year-old associate justice assumed Tuesday her new post as head of the judiciary

Present during the visit were Court of Appeals magistrates, led by Presiding Justice Romeo Barza, and Manila trial court judges, led by Executice Judge Thelma Bunyi-Media. - Ina Reformina, ABS-CBN News
