-In the case of Dumlao: what are the classifications? -In the Ormoc Case: there was no classification since the ordinance was exclusively applicable to Ormoc (violated the requisite that it must apply to present and future cases)

(3 levels: strict, intermediate, rational) -What is usually used? -rational scrutiny: legitimate state interest and the classifications are rationaly related to government interest -Strict scrutiny: compelling state interest -Intermediate: there must be an important state interest; and it must be substantial -Where does rational scrutiny apply? -- in almost all cases; that is why there is such a thing as a presumption of constitutionality (for as long as it is not unreasonable, the court will sustain it) -Strict scrutiny test was applied in the case of Gallant *The three levels of scrutiny is based on US Jurisprudence (not normally used in the Philippines; the traditional test used is RATIONAL SCRUTINY because of the presumption of constitutionality) *The strict scrutiny test is used in racial discrimination *Rational scrutiny test --> almost always papasa iyan; the court will say that the legislature knows what its doing *Strict scrutiny --> almost always the government will lose *The Central Bank Case: the majority and ponente applied strict scrutiny test since the working class is a protected class (just like in the Serrano case; the OFWs are a protected class) *Strict scrutiny should apply in the Philippines since it involves fundamental rights (BoR)

-Case of Dimayuga:

-*CoA vs. Gabor --> why do they want to be treated similarly to this case?

-Biraogo case: there was no substantial distinction between the Arroyo administration and the previous administration

-Garcia vs. Drilon case: She was suing her husband under VAWC law -The classification is between women and men (considered to be valid) -There are three reasons as to why the classification is substantial:

1.) Women are usually victims 2.) They are historically and scientifically more vulnerable and weaker than men 3.) History of gender bias

Riano: described an overview of a criminal judicial process *Know the stages of criminal procedure -What is the start? = a crime is committed -What is the end? = judgment and appeal -Why does the judge need to determine if there is probable cause?
