The Supreme Court opinions (majority opinion, dissenting opinions and concurring opinions) in re: Duterte's Mindanao-wide martial law proclamation (to defeat the Maute-ISIS terrorists in Marawi City) have been posted on the Supreme Court website. 

The records consist of fifteen files using more than eleven megabytes. The majority opinion alone consists of eighty two pages. 

You may save the files in your database for future reference. The records are too long to evaluate and assess at this time vis-a-vis applicable constitutional provisions and doctrines.
