LIST of OSG's Victories in Landmark and Ordinary Cases

Requested from OSG by M. Dominguez at 02:20 PM on May 21, 2021.
Purpose: School Publication
Date of Coverage: 06/30/2016 - 05/21/2021
Tracking no: #OSG-410725621654

Dominguez 02:20 PM, May 21, 2021

Greetings!  I knew that the OSG has been continuously drowned with flak due to the "controversial" cases that the OSG has won.  I want to show that the OSG has indeed fulfilled its role as the tribune of the people by winning cases that would favor the Filipinos.
Therefore, I humbly request for a:
-A list of all Landmark cases WON by the OSG from June 30, 2016-present
-A list of top ordinary cases (that have impacted the general welfare of the people/ that have given protection, benefits, etc. to the Filipinos) WON by the OSG from June 30, 2016-present

May 25, 2021
