“I was able to confirm with Chief Justice [Diosdado] Peralta that the Supreme Court dismissed today during their en banc meeting the quo warranto petition filed by the Solicitor General against ABS-CBN Corporation on the ground of mootness,” Hosaka said.

Calida, in his petition, wants ABS CBN to stop its operation citing several violations of its franchise.
