Canon 1629. There is no appeal:

1. from a sentence of the Supreme Pontiff himself or the Apostolic Signatura;

2. from a sentence tainted by a defect of nullity, unless the appeal is joined with a complaint of nullity according to the norm of can. 1625;

3. from a sentence which has become a *res iudicata*;

4. from a decree of a judge or from an interlocutory sentence which does not have the force of a definitive sentence, unless it is joined with an appeal from a definitive sentence;

5. from a sentence or a decree in a case where the law requires the matter to be decided as promptly as possible (*expeditissime*).
