"xxx

"Respondent's failure to submit the brief to the appellate court within the reglementary period entails disciplinary action. Not only is it a dereliction of duty to his client but also to the court as well. His shortcomings before the Court of Appeals is, in itself, already deplorable but to repeat the same infraction before this Court constitutes negligence of contumacious proportions. It is even worse that the respondent has attempted to mitigate his liability by professing ignorance of appellate procedures, a matter that, too, is inexcusable.cralaw

"xxx

"WHEREFORE, this Court so finds respondent Atty. Amado Orden remiss in his sworn duty to his client, and to the Bar and the Bench as well and imposes upon him the penalty of SUSPENSION from the practice of law for the period of one (1) year immediately effective upon his receipt of this judgment.cralaw

Copy of the said decision was received by Atty. Orden on May 11, 2000.cralaw
