This tract is the work of Johannes Auerbach;  the frequent textual ascription (as in this edition) of the Processus iudiciarius to Nicolaus de Tudeschis Panormitanus is erroneous.

The Processus iudiciarius is entered under Auerbach, Johannes, jurist, by ISTC and Goff who distinguish him from the writer of similar name, Aurbach, Johannes, theologian, author of Summa de sacramentis.  And the two authors are also distinguished in GW - though there both have the identical spelling Auerbach.  However, Bod-inc (A-496 and A-613-A-615, Index, p. 2756) treats the jurist and theologian as one and the same person, which appears to be substantiated in the biographical entry “Urbach (Auerbach), Johannes” by Hartmut Boockmann in 'Die deutsche Literatur des Mittelalters:  Verfasserlexicon', vol. 10 (1999), cols 117-121.
