BOOK VII : PROCESSES

PART I : TRIALS IN GENERAL (Cann. 1400 - 1403)

Can. 1400 §1 The objects of a trial are:

to pursue or vindicate the rights of physical or juridical persons, or to declare juridical facts;

to impose or to declare penalties in regard to offences.

§2 Disputes arising from an act of administrative power, however, can be referred only to the Superior or to an administrative tribunal.

Can. 1401 The Church has its own and exclusive right to judge:

cases which refer to matters which are spiritual or linked with the spiritual;

the violation of ecclesiastical laws and whatever contains an element of sin, to determine guilt and impose ecclesiastical penalties.

Can. 1402 All tribunals of the Church are governed by the canons which follow, without prejudice to the norms of the tribunals of the Apostolic See.

Can. 1403 §1 Cases for the canonisation of the Servants of God are governed by special pontifical law.

§2 The provisions of this Code are also applied to these cases whenever the special pontifical law remits an issue to the universal law, or whenever norms are involved which of their very nature apply also to these cases.
