A: Your friend should ask his criminal defense attorney. There is not a standard type of court appearance generally known throughout Texas as a "supplemental setting." It is possible that it means something specific in the county where the case is pending but it is most likely a default catch-all description for less common types of settings. If it was a common occurrence then the court's computer system would probably have a more informative name for it... probably.
