Canon 1645. §1. *Restitutio in integrum* is granted against a sentence which has become res iudicata provided that its injustice is clearly established.

§2. Injustice, however, is not considered to be established clearly unless:

1. the sentence is based on proofs which afterwards are discovered to be false in such a way that without those proofs the dispositive part of the sentence is not sustained;

2. documents have been revealed afterwards which undoubtedly prove new facts and demand a contrary decision;

3. the sentence was rendered due to the malice of one party resulting in harm to the other party;

4. a prescript of the law which is not merely procedural was clearly neglected;

5. the sentence is contrary to a previous decision which has become *res iudicata*.
