ARTICLE 2 The territorial jurisdiction and jurisdiction of the court referred to in the preceding article shall be the same as that currently operating in that jurisdiction in the Federal Capital.

ARTICLE 7o - Each of the federal courts of the Capital will have five secretaries and one prosecretary, with the staff who assign the budget. The secretariats and prosecretariats with their staffing of the current federal courts will become part of those that are created, as follows: a secretariat of each of the courts numbers 5 and 6 will go to number 4.

ARTICLE 8o - The other federal court referred to in the General Budget Law for 1948 will have the same jurisdiction and jurisdiction as the law assigns to which it currently operates in the city of Córdoba.

Both judges shall be replaced with each other in the event of a licence, impediment or recusal on a case-by-case basis, following the order established by law 4.162.

ARTICLE 9o - Consider a position of prosecutor for the Federal Court of Cordoba, created by the General Budget Law for 1948, and referred to in the previous article.

ARTICLE 10. - The Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation shall regulate the manner in which cases are to be distributed between the existing courts and the new ones referred to in the present law, as well as the shifts to be heard in the new cases; it shall also determine the date on which the latter shall commence, once they have been installed.
