Appeals

An appeal is a request to have a higher court reverse the decision of a trial court after a final judgment or other legal ruling has been entered. After the lower court judgment is entered into the record, the losing party (appellant) may file a notice of appeal, and request transcripts or other records of the trial court. The appellant files a brief with the appeals court citing legal reasons for reversing the trial court's ruling. No new evidence is admitted on appeal.
