We consider a non-conforming stabilized domain decomposition technique for the discretization of the three-dimensional Laplace equation. The aim is to extend the numerical analysis of residual error indicators to this model problem. Two formulations of the problem are considered and the error estimators are studied for both. In the first one, the error estimator provides upper and lower bounds for the energy norm of the mortar finite element solution whereas in the second case, it also estimates the error for the Lagrange multiplier.
