B
VIOLATIONS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS SUCH AS, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, VIOLATIONS OF ARTICLE 188 OF THE REVISED PENAL CODE [SUBSTITUTING AND ALTERING TRADEMARKS, TRADE NAMES, OR SERVICE MARKS], ARTICLE 189 OF THE REVISED PENAL CODE [UNFAIR COMPETITION, FRAUDULENT REGISTRATION OF TRADEMARKS, TRADE NAMES, OR SERVICE MARKS, FRAUDULENT DESIGNATION OF ORIGIN AND FALSE DESCRIPTION], P. D. NO. 49 [PROTECTION OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS], P. D. NO. 87 [AN ACT CREATING THE VIDEOGRAM REGULATORY BOARD], R. A. NO. 165 AS AMENDED [THE TRADEMARK LAW] SHALL BE TRIED EXCLUSIVELY BY THE REGIONAL TRIAL COURTS IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE ESTABLISHED RAFFLE SCHEME EXCEPT THOSE COVERED BY ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 113-95 DATED 2 OCTOBER 1995, IN WHICH CASE, THE DESIGNATED REGIONAL TRIAL COURTS SHALL CONTINUE TO OBSERVE THE PROVISIONS THEREIN.   

CONSIDERING THAT JURISDICTION FOR VIOLATIONS OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS HEREINBEFORE MENTIONED IS NOW CONFINED EXCLUSIVELY TO THE REGIONAL TRIAL COURTS, THE DESIGNATION OF METROPOLITAN TRIAL COURTS AND MUNICIPAL TRIAL COURTS IN CITIES UNDER ADMINISTRATIVE ORDER NO. 113-95 IS DELETED AND WITHDRAWN.

C
LIBEL CASES SHALL BE TRIED BY THE REGIONAL TRIAL COURTS HAVING JURISDICTION OVER THEM TO THE EXCLUSION OF THE METROPOLITAN TRIAL COURTS, MUNICIPAL TRIAL COURTS IN CITIES, MUNICIPAL TRIAL COURTS AND MUNICIPAL CIRCUIT TRIAL COURTS.

For purposes of this admininstrative order, all single sala courts are considered special courts for all cases covered under Pars. A and B herein, and for this reason, shall give priority to these cases in their trial calendars.  

The cases referred to herein shall undergo mandatory continous trial and shall be terminated within sixty [60] days from commencement of the trial. Judgment thereon shall be rendered within thirty [30] days from submission for decision unless a shorter period is provided by law or otherwise directed by this Court.  

Where trial has already begun, the same shall continue to be heard by the respective Branches to which they have been originally assigned. For purposes hereof, a criminal case is considered begun when the accused or any of them has already been arraigned; in a civil case, it is when pre-trial has already been conducted and a pre-trial order issued.  

The Executive Judges of the Regional Trial Courts concerned shall exclude these designated Special Courts from the raffle of other cases, criminal and civil, whenever in their judgment the caseload of these courts shall prevent them from conducting daily trial of the special cases herein specified.  

The Branches thus designated as Special Courts shall continue to perform their functions as such within the purview of this Admininstrative Order even after the retirement, transfer or detail of the incumbent judges appointed/designated to preside over them. Their successors, whether permanent or temporary, shall act as Presiding Judges of these Special Courts unless the Supreme Court otherwise directs.  

No postponement or continuance shall be allowed except for clearly meritorious reasons. Pleadings or motions found to have been filed for dilatory purposes shall constitute direct contempt and shall be punished accordingly.  

This Administrative Order amends or otherwise supersedes Adm. Order No. 173-94 dated 28 September 1994, Adm. Order No. 51-96 dated 3 May 1996, and Adm. Order No. 113-95 dated 2 October 1995, and such other orders, circulars, memoranda or issuances, if any, as may be inconsistent herewith.  

This Order shall take effect fifteen [15] days after its publication in a newspaper of general circulation.  

21 October 1996.
