De Castro was bypassed for the position of Chief Justice of the SC during the administrations of former president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo and Benigno Aquino III. During her appearance at the committee hearings, Representative Ramon Rocamora asked De Castro if she was in the running for Chief Justice and how she felt when Sereno was appointed, bypassing senior justices. De Castro was appointed to the Supreme Court in December 2007 by Arroyo. (FAST FACTS: Who is SC Justice Teresita Leonardo-De Castro?
