FIRST DIVISION

A.C. No. 4545, February 05, 2014

CARLITO ANG, Complainant, v. ATTY. JAMES JOSEPH GUPANA, Respondent.

DECISION

VILLARAMA, JR., J.:

Before us is a petition for review under Rule 139–B, Section 12(c) of the Rules of Court assailing Resolution Nos. XVII–
2005–1411 and XVIII–2008–6982 of the Board of Governors of the Integrated Bar of the Philippines (IBP). The IBP Board
of Governors found respondent Atty. James Joseph Gupana administratively liable and imposed on him the penalty of
suspension for one year from the practice of law and the revocation of his notarial commission and disqualification from
reappointment as notary public for two years.

The case stemmed from an affidavit–complaint3 filed by complainant Carlito Ang against respondent. Ang alleged that
on May 31, 1991, he and the other heirs of the late Candelaria Magpayo, namely Purificacion Diamante and William
Magpayo, executed an Extra–judicial Declaration of Heirs and Partition4 involving Lot No. 2066–B–2–B which had an
area of 6,258 square meters and was covered by Transfer Certificate of Title (TCT ) No. (T–22409)–6433. He was given
his share of 2,003 square meters designated as Lot No. 2066–B–2–B–4, together with all the improvements thereon.5
However, when he tried to secure a TCT in his name, he found out that said TCT No. (T–22409)–6433 had already been
cancelled and in lieu thereof, new TCTs6 had been issued in the names of William Magpayo, Antonio Diamante, Patricia
Diamante, Lolita D. Canque, Gregorio Diamante, Jr. and Fe D. Montero.

Ang alleged that there is reasonable ground to believe that respondent had a direct participation in the commission of
forgeries and falsifications because he was the one who prepared and notarized the Affidavit of Loss7 and Deed of
DebtKollect Company, Inc. Absolute Sale8 that led to the transfer and issuance of the new TCTs. Ang pointed out that the Deed of Absolute Sale
which was allegedly executed by Candelaria Magpayo on April 17, 1989, was antedated and Candelaria Magpayo’s
signature was forged as clearly shown by the Certification9 issued by the Office of the Clerk of Court of the Regional Trial
Court (RTC) of Cebu. Further, the certified true copy of page 37, Book No. XII, Series of 1989 of respondent’s Notarial
Report indubitably showed that Doc. No. 181 did not refer to the Deed of Absolute Sale, but to an affidavit.10 As to the
Affidavit of Loss, which was allegedly executed by the late Candelaria Magpayo on April 29, 1994, it could not have been
executed by her as she died11 three years prior to the execution of the said affidavit of loss.

Ang further alleged that on September 22, 1995, respondent made himself the attorney–in–fact of William Magpayo,
Antonio Diamante, Patricia Diamante, Lolita Canque, Gregorio Diamante, Jr. and Fe D. Montero, and pursuant to the
Special Power of Attorney in his favor, executed a Deed of Sale12 selling Lot No. 2066–B–2–B–4 to Lim Kim So
Mercantile Co. on October 10, 1995. Ang complained that the sale was made even though a civil case involving the said
parcel of land was pending before the RTC of Mandaue City, Cebu.13

In his Comment,14 respondent denied any wrongdoing and argued that Ang is merely using the present administrative
complaint as a tool to force the defendants in a pending civil case and their counsel, herein respondent, to accede to his
wishes. Respondent averred that Ang had filed Civil Case No. Man–2202 before Branch 55 of the Mandaue City RTC. He
anchored his claim on the Extra–judicial Declaration of Heirs and Partition and sought to annul the deed of sale and
prayed for reconveyance of the subject parcel of land. During the pre–trial conference in Civil Case No. Man–2202, Ang
admitted that he is not an heir of the late Candelaria Magpayo but insisted on his claim for a share of the lot because he
ChanRobles Intellectual Property Division is allegedly the son of the late Isaias Ang, the common–law husband of Candelaria Magpayo. Because of his admission,
the notice of lis pendens annotated in the four certificates of title of the land in question were ordered cancelled and the
land effectively became available for disposition. Ang sought reconsideration of the order, but a compromise was
reached that only one TCT (TCT No. 34266) will be annotated with a notice of lis pendens. Respondent surmised that
these developments in Civil Case No. Man–2202 meant that Ang would lose his case so Ang resorted to the filing of the
present administrative complaint. Thus, respondent prayed for the dismissal of the case for being devoid of any factual
or legal basis, or in the alternative, holding resolution of the instant case in abeyance pending resolution of Civil Case
No. Man–2202 allegedly because the issues in the present administrative case are similar to the issues or subject
matters involved in said civil case.

Investigating Commissioner Lydia A. Navarro of the IBP Commission on Bar Discipline, to whom the case was referred
for investigation, report and recommendation, submitted her Report and Recommendation15 finding respondent
administratively liable. She recommended that respondent be suspended from the practice of law for three months. She
held that respondent committed an unethical act when he allowed himself to be an instrument in the disposal of the
subject property through a deed of sale executed between him as attorney–in–fact of his client and Lim Kim So
Mercantile Co. despite his knowledge that said property is the subject of a pending litigation before the RTC of Mandaue
City, Cebu. The Investigating Commissioner additionally found that respondent “delegated the notarial functions to the
clerical staff of their office before being brought to him for his signature.” This, according to the commissioner, “must
have been the reason for the forged signatures of the parties in the questioned document…as well as the erroneous
entry in his notarial register….”16 Nonetheless, the Investigating Commissioner merely reminded respondent to be more
cautious in the performance of his duties as regards his infraction of his notarial duties. She held,

Respondent should have been more cautious in his duty as notary public which requires that the party
subscribing to the authenticity of the document should personally appear and sign the same before
respondent’s actual presence. As such notary public respondent should not delegate to any unqualified
  person the performance of any task which by law may only be performed by a member of the bar in
accordance with Rule 9.0117 of the Code of Professional Responsibility.18 ChanRoblesVirtualawlibrary

  On November 12, 2005, the Board of Governors of the IBP issued Resolution No. XVII–2005–141,19 adopting the
findings of the Investigating Commissioner but modifying the recommended penalty. Instead of suspension for three
months, the Board recommended the penalty of suspension from the practice of law for one year and revocation of
  respondent’s notarial commission and disqualification from reappointment as notary public for two years.

  Respondent filed a motion for reconsideration,20 arguing that it was neither illegal nor unethical for a lawyer to accept
appointment as attorney–in–fact of a client to sell a property involved in a pending litigation and to act as such. He
further contended that granting that his act was unethical, the modified penalty was evidently too harsh and extremely
  excessive considering that the act complained of was not unlawful and done without malice.
 
  February-2014 Jurisprudence               On December 11, 2008, the IBP Board of Governors adopted Resolution No. XVIII–2008–69821 denying respondent’s
   motion for reconsideration and affirming Resolution No. XVII–2005–141. Hence, this petition for review.
