What is Appeals Law?
Appeals Law, also known as Appellate Law, consists of the rules and practices by which higher courts review lower court judgments. It primarily deals with but is not limited to:
- What judgments are appealable
- How appeals are brought before the court
- The requirements for a reversal of the lower court
- Appeals' procedures
- Posting and challenging appellate bonds
- Writs of habeas corpus (Habeas Corpus Act), writs of execution, writs of restitution, writs of quo warranto, writs of procedendo, writs of supersedas, writs of prohibition, writs of mandate, writs of administrative mandamus, writs of certiorari
- Other forms of discretionary relief
- Post-verdict motions
HOW DOES APPEALS LAW DIFFER FROM OTHER FORMS OF LITIGATION?
In Appeals Law there is no discovery. The appellate record is limited to what was already presented to the trial court. No new evidence or witnesses can be presented except in exceptional circumstances.
