Canon 1620. A sentence suffers from the defect of irremediable nullity if:

1. it was rendered by an absolutely incompetent judge;

2. it was rendered by a person who lacks the power of judging in the tribunal in which the case was decided;

3. a judge rendered a sentence coerced by force or grave fear;

4. the trial took place without the judicial petition mentioned in can. 1501 or was not instituted against some respondent;

5. it was rendered between parties, at least one of whom did not have standing in the trial;

6. someone acted in the name of another without a legitimate mandate;

7. the right of defense was denied to one or the other party;

8. it did not decide the controversy even partially.
