Law/Patents - Law (general) / court
French term or phrase: statuant en audience foraine
Phrase:
"Tribunal de Grande Instance de *** statuant en audience foraine du Tribunal de Commerce de ****"
Je sais que l'audience foraine est "out-of-town hearing",
mais je suis confuse quant au tribunal qui prononce l'arret - si c'est l'audience du tribunal de commerce, comment est-ce que c'est le tribunal de grande instance qui statue???

English translation:acting in an extra-jurisdictional/extra-territorial hearing
Explanation:
According to Multidico French dictionary:

Audience foraine, audience tenue par le juge d'instance hors du chef-lieu de la circonscription du tribunal.

The Lectric Law dictionary defines jurisdiction as:

A power constitutionally conferred upon a judge or magistrate, to take cognizance of and decide causes according to law and to carry his sentence into execution. The tract of land or district within which a judge or magistrate has jurisdiction, is called his territory and his power in relation to his territory is called his territorial jurisdiction.

So, if the territory in which a judge/court has power to take decisions is "territorial", one in which such judge or court lack power to make decisions would be an extra-territorial juridiction.

As regards your other question, I guess this may be a case of "concurrent jurisdiction", i.e, a jurisdiction that may be entertained by more than one court. (the power of both courts to make decisions "overlaps" to put it in simple words),
Hope it'll help
