What happens if the RTC of San Fernando, Pampanga would still conduct hearings and issue orders in Criminal case No. 18480 against Delfin Lee?

All hearings, proceedings, orders of the RTC of San Fernando, Pampanga are VOID or WITHOUT ANY EFFECT.

Does it mean that the Commitment Order issued by the RTC Judge against Delfin Lee is void?

YES!

Does it mean that the scheduled arraignment of delfin Lee on March 10 is also VOID?

YES!

Why?

Because the Decision of the Court of Appeals is very explicit that Judge Reyes committed grave abuse of discretion amounting to lack or excess of jurisdiction. In short, Judge Reyes has no more jurisdiction over Delfin Lee in Criminal Case No. 18480, hence, Judge Reyes has no more power to issue any order or conduct any hearings in Criminal Case No. 18480 insofar Delfin Lee is concerned.
