A CHIEF justice known for advocating the use of technology in courts and his concern for how social networks can affect the judiciary’s image received from a Cebu university yesterday an honorary Doctor of Laws degree.

Chief Justice Emeritus Robert J. Torres Jr. called it “a wonderful and unexpected award” and congratulated the 2011 graduates of the University of Cebu for their “sacrifices and hard work.”

In his speech, Chief Justice Torres said he has a strong affinity with the country, particularly in the cooperation between the Supreme Court of the Philippines and Guam’s Supreme Court.

Two months ago in Manila, Torres spoke about how social networking sites, like Twitter and Facebook, can be used to improve the people’s access to the court’s information.

He pointed out that the rapid sharing of sensational stories or opinions about some cases can threaten the delivery of justice, and emphasized the court’s responsibility to interact with and encourage the trust of the community.
