G.R. No. 119602, October 06, 2000
The Philippine Roxas, a vessel owned by Philippine President Lines, was grounded and as a result blocked the passage of Malandrinon, a vessel owned by Wildvalley, which caused its failure to sail out of Puerto Ordaz on that day. Due to this, Wildvalley filed a suit with the Regional Trial Court of Manila against Philippine President Lines, Inc for damages.
The trial court rendered its decision in favor of the petitioner,
The CA reversed the Trial Court’s decision and provided that under the PH Law, no fault or negligence can be attributed to Philippine Roxas.
