CA Elects New Clerk of Court

In an en banc session held last November 5, 2007, the CA Justices chose Atty. Teresita Rigonan Marigomen as the new Clerk of Court of the Court of Appeals. Atty. Marigomen, however, is unmindful of the awesome powers of her new office and still maintains her simplicity.  To her, the position of Clerk of Court is a duty to be performed with utmost dedication and a burden to be discharged with fervor and efficiency.

“Trix” to her colleagues, Atty. Marigomen obtained both her Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Law degrees from U.P. Diliman.  Although she doesn’t look like it, the new CA Clerk of Court is already 50 years old and has spent 21 years in the judiciary in various capacities: she served as Private Secretary to then CA Justice Ricardo Pronove, as a  Confidential Attorney of Justice Alfredo Marigomen (who later became her father-in-law), had worked in the Office of the Clerk of Court in the Supreme Court, went back to the CA to become a Division Clerk of Court, and was thereafter appointed as Assistant Clerk of Court of the CA Cebu Station.

Atty. Marigomen considers her appointment as Assistant Clerk of Court of the CA Cebu Station as a turning point in her life. It was there when the position of Assistant Clerk of Court in CA Manila was left vacant that she felt the need to go back and try her luck. She was fortunate enough to get the position. From there the position of Clerk of Court was within easy reach and just a matter of time. She finally bagged it last November 5 and the rest is now history.

A woman with deep faith, the new Clerk of Court believes that everything that has happened to her and the blessings that have come her way were by the will of God and that in return, she promises to discharge her duties pursuant to her oath in the best lights that God has given her.
