Court of Review of the Trial of a Bishop 

The court has appellate jurisdiction to hear all appeals from a convicted bishop. In cases involving holding and teaching doctrine contrary to that of the church, it may hear appeals from the church attorney in cases of acquittal. In the latter case, the appeal is only as to questions of law and cannot reverse a finding of "not guilty." It consists of nine bishops, three of whom shall be elected at each General Convention by the House of Bishops for a nine-year term.
