November 23, 2011. The Supreme Court, voting en banc, unanimously agreed to junk the stock distribution option (SDO), and finally distribute the 4,915.75-hectare Hacienda Luisita to its original 6,296 farmer-beneficiaries.

President Benigno Aquino III, whose family partly owns the Hacienda, stated that he respects the SC decision, and would likely oversee its implementation via the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).
