TITLE II : DIFFERENT GRADES AND KINDS OF TRIBUNALS (Cann. 1417 - 1445)

Can. 1417 §1 Because of the primacy of the Roman Pontiff, any of the faithful may either refer their case to, or introduce it before, the Holy See, whether the case be contentious or penal. They may do so at any grade of trial or at any stage of the suit.

§2 Apart from the case of an appeal, a referral to the Apostolic See does not suspend the exercise of jurisdiction of a judge who has already begun to hear a case. The judge can, therefore, continue with the trial up to the definitive judgement, unless the Apostolic See has indicated to him that it has reserved the case to itself.

Can. 1418 Every tribunal has the right to call on other tribunals for assistance in instructing a case or in communicating acts.
