MANILA, Philippines–Philippine Military Academy (PMA) Cadet 1st Class Aldrin Jeff P. Cudia has asked the Supreme Court to block and nullify his dismissal.

His petition was filed on March 10, 2014. Cudia asked the high court to issue a temporary restraining order (TRO) or status quo ante order (SQAO) to prevent the implementation of his dismissal.


“It is respectfully prayed of the Honorable Court that upon the receipt of this petition a Status Quo Ante Order (SQAO) or a Temporary Restraining Order be issued… [f]or the PMA to cease and desist from approving the ‘guilty’ verdict of the Honor Committee as the basis for separating or expelling Cadet Cudia from the academy,” his petition stated.

Cudia also wants the high court to order his inclusion in the graduation rights, award him his academic honors, and commission him as a new Navy ensign.


The cadet also urged the high court to order the transmittal of his case records to the PMA’s Cadet and Review and Appeals Board (CRAB).

The case was raffled off to the Third Division. But the high court has not yet acted on his case.

The PMA graduation rites is on Sunday.

Cudia was dishonorably discharged for violating its Honor Code due to his tardiness in one class.
