The court of cassation verifies that the decisions referred to it were made in accordance with the rules of law.
The period of recourse to this court (appeal to the court of cassation) is 2 months. When the appeal appears grounded by law the court of cassation annuls all of part of the decision pronounced (cassation). It then refers the case to another court of the same order, the same instance and the same nature as the original court. When it considers the appeal to be ungrounded, the court of cassation delivers a rejection judgment.
