Update on Gay Librarian's
Discrimination Case

More than six months after Marlon Lacsamana filed a criminal case against Miriam College (see "Gay Librarian Sues Employer"), the prosecutor's office dismissed the case because the matter is still pending before the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRC).

It is not clear, based on "Gay discrimination suit vs. Miriam dismissed" by Nancy Carvajal (Philippine Daily Inquirer, 5 July 2006), whether the prosecutor will, in fact, pursue the case if the NLRC rules that Miriam College is liable for illegal dismissal.

But if you take a look at the NLRC's accomplishment report (pdf), while the number of cases disposed of every year has increased, the percentage of cases has only improved slightly. So it will probably take a long while before another update on Lacsamana's case is forthcoming.
