1. A tribunal of first instance for several eparchies of the
same Church sui iuris may be erected by the patriarch with the
consent of the eparchial bishops concerned, if it is a case of
eparchies situated within the territorial boundaries of the patriarchal Church; in other cases, it may be erected by the eparchial bishops who have consented to this and with the approval of
the Apostolic See. 2. This tribunal should be established if
each of the eparchial bishops is unable for various reasons to
establish his own tribunal; within the territorial boundaries of
the patriarchal Church, if such is the case, this tribunal is to
be established by the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church.
3. In eparchies for which such a tribunal has been established,
a collegiate eparchial tribunal cannot be established validly.
4. The group of eparchial bishops who consented to having such
a tribunal, or an eparchial bishop elected by them, has all the
powers which an eparchial bishop has over his own tribunal; if,
however, the tribunal was established by the synod of bishops of
the patriarchal Church or by the Apostolic See, the norms determined by the synod or by the Apostolic See are to be observed.
5. Within the territorial boundaries of the patriarchal Church,
an appeal from this tribunal is made to the ordinary tribunal of
the patriarchal Church; however, in other cases, it is made to
the tribunal designated in a stable manner by the group of
bishops mentioned in 4, with the approval of the Apostolic See,
or to the tribunal designated by the Apostolic See.
