Supreme Court cleaning up judiciary scandal

Supreme Court (SC) ruled and came up with the decision over the five Court of Appeals (CA) justices who were involved in the Meralco-GSIS case.

CA Associate Justice Vicente Roxas for multiple violations of the Code of Judicial Conduct, grave misconduct and dishonesty while slapped Justice Jose Sabio with a two-month suspension for conduct unbecoming of a CA justice. Also, the court reprimanded CA Presiding Justice Conrado Vasquez and Justice Bienvenido Reyes, and admonished Justice Myrna Vidal.

After this gloomy chapter in the Philippine judiciary system, has the SC successfully cleaned up the mess? I guess this is just a start. The justices were involved in a very controversial case between Meralco & GSIS that is why the issue came up with a big bang. But what about other Filipino people who are long been waiting for justice to serve on their respective claims and cases? I have high hopes that the current SC Chief Justice Reynato Puno can swipe and renew the entire judicial system from the city up to the provinces to serve justice for the needy.
