Docket Fees on Supplemental Complaint

The docket fees on the supplemental complaint should be paid at the time of the filing thereof and should not be treated as a first lien on the judgment award. Hence the supplemental complaint should be expunged if the docket fees thereon were not paid. The trial court nonetheless does not lose the jurisdiction it had acquired over the case with the filing of the original complaint. (G.R. No. 176339. January 10, 2011)
