Abstract

The promulgation of the motu proprio Mitis iudex has not only changed the procedural laws to process matrimonial nullity cases, but has left canon lawyers with a number of unanswered questions. In this article, Msgr. Roch Pagé reflects on some of the aspects of Mitis iudex and offers very helpful insights. He also touches upon the now famous article 14 of the procedural norms and argues that it cannot resurrect the so-called El Paso Presumptions, explicitly forbidden by decree of the Apostolic Signatura.
