ARTICLE 2: THE INTRODUCTION AND THE EXCLUSION OF WITNESSES

Can. 1551 A party who has introduced a witness may forego the examination of that witness, but the opposing party may ask that the witness nevertheless be examined.

Can. 1552 §1 When proof by means of witnesses is sought, the names and addresses of the witnesses are to be communicated to the tribunal.

§2 The propositions on which the interrogation of the witnesses is requested, are to be submitted within the time-limit determined by the judge; otherwise, the request is to be deemed abandoned.

Can. 1553 It is for the judge to curb an excessive number of witnesses.

Can. 1554 Before witnesses are examined, their names are to be communicated to the parties. If, in the prudent opinion of the judge, this cannot be done without great difficulty, it is to be done at least before the publication of the evidence.

Can. 1555 Without prejudice to the provisions of can. 1550, a party may request that a witness be excluded, provided a just reason for exclusion is established before the witness is examined.

Can. 1556 The summons of a witness is effected by a decree of the judge lawfully notified to the witness.

Can. 1557 A properly summoned witness is to appear, or to make known to the judge the reason for being absent.
