ABS-CBNNews.com reports that "the Supreme Court (SC) effectively dismissed the libel case filed by veteran actress Sharon Cuneta against some editors of Bandera due to technicalities." The report noted: "In a decision penned by Associate Justice Diosdado M. Peralta, the third division of the high court said Cuneta made a ’misstep’ when she appealed the decision of the Mandaluyong Regional Trial Court before the Court of Appeals sans the representation from the Office of the Solicitor General (OSG)." The law stipulates that "the OSG shall represent the government in any litigation or proceedings where it is a party."

 

According to the report, Cuneta’s filed the libel case against Bandera editors Lito Bautista and Jimmy Alcantara for the "allegedly defamatory statements published on April 24, 2001 in the tabloid." The report revealed that the said article had described Cuneta’s weight, as well referred to her as a "mega-brat" and "brain-dead."
