Appellate Court

Life

The appeals court may affirm the lower court’s decree, judgment, or order, which is a declaration that the decision of the lower court was right and it will stand.

Error: If the appellate court holds that the lower court’s decision was erroneous, it will reverse, modify, or remand.

What decision can the appellate court make?

Because the appeals court only reviews the actions of the lower court not the actions of the parties its decision is couched in terms of whether the lower court made the right decision. The ranges of options for an appeals court are: 

Affirm:
The appeals court may affirm the lower court’s decree, judgment, or order, which is a declaration that the decision of the lower court was right and it will stand.
 
Error:
If the appellate court holds that the lower court’s decision was erroneous, it will reverse, modify, or remand (see below). It may rule that the mistake was a harmless error, which means that even though there was an error, it did not affect the outcome of the case enough to make a difference. Maybe a particular witness should have been allowed to testify, but the testimony would have been similar to that of a witness who did take the stand and whose testimony did not carry much weight. So the jury probably would not have found the excluded testimony very compelling. Excluding the witness was harmless error.
 
Modify:
A final trial court decision may be affirmed by a higher court with minor modification that does not affect the substance or general findings of the decision.
 
Remand:
A case is remanded when it is sent back to the lower court with instructions about what the lower court should do. Usually, a remand means there were errors in the trial court’s decision to such an extent that the appellate court cannot correct the errors itself. The lower court must reconsider the case based on the appellate court’s instructions.
 
Reverse:
An appeals court decision to reverse a case is a ruling that the trial court should have reached the opposite conclusion. For example, a finding for the plaintiff should have been a finding that the defendant was not liable; or a finding for the defendant should have been a ruling that there was enough evidence to find the defendant liable. Unlike a remand, the appeals court has enough evidence in the record to make a determination to reverse. Sometimes, the appeals court reverses and remands at the same time. In this situation, the court has enough information to reverse the trial court’s bottom line, its ultimate decision, but some questions (such as the amount of damages) still need to be worked out on remand.
 
In addition to these different options, appeals courts often hand down decisions that combine several different rulings. A court may reverse in part and affirm in part, or it may affirm a judgment as modified by the points described in its opinion.

What does the appellate courts have the authority to decide?

What an appeals court has authority to decide is limited. The appellant must outline the specific question it wants answered by the appeals court. The question may be as broad as, “Did the trial court err in deciding in favor of the plaintiff?” or it may be very specific. Usually, the appellant asks that several critical questions be answered.
 
Historically, rather than “filing an appeal” a party was said to file a “writ of error.” The writ of error was a request to a higher court to overturn the lower court’s final decision based on a critical error in reasoning or, simply, because the decision was wrong.
 
Because appeals are structured in this way, it is sometimes said that the actions of the trial judge are on trial, not the actions of the parties to the original litigation.

Re-Litigate

In fact, the parties do not have a chance to re-litigate the case before the appeals court. The trial level offers the only opportunity for parties to submit evidence, examine and cross-examine witnesses, and argues the facts and the law of the case.
 
The appeals court only considers whether the trial was conducted properly and whether the outcome was reached by proper application of the law to the facts. As noted above, the only question for an appeals court may be very specific, such as whether a particular document should have been submitted. But only issues that were raised originally in the trial court can be challenged at the appellate level.

Evidence

The body of evidence, which includes the arguments, testimony, and objections considered in the trial court, is all that may be considered by the appeals panel. This body of evidence is called the record. Every piece of evidence and every argument made by the parties’ lawyers are recorded into one big document, the record, which is said to “close” once the trial is over. Once the record is closed, no more evidence can be included. Also, no more objections to evidence can be made.
 
At the appeals level, the court is restricted to review of the record. A party cannot offer new evidence or new objections for the appellate court to consider. The age discrimination plaintiff, for example, may not ask the appellate court to overturn the decision of the trial judge based on a new document that the trial judge never saw.
 
The trial was the only opportunity to present the document. On the other hand, the plaintiff may argue on appeal that the judge should have allowed his coworker to testify, as long as the plaintiff made that argument in his original case. He may give the appellate court an indication of what the coworker would have said, so the court can weigh whether the exclusion of the testimony was harmful to the plaintiff’s case.

What are requirements for appealing a decision?

A party in a lawsuit who wishes to appeal an adverse decision may not do so until the trial court has made its final decision. If the lower court has not yet rendered its final decision, the appeal is not appropriate. It would be confusing and inefficient for everyone involved if a higher court were to step in and give its input into the proceedings in the lower court while they are still going on. After a lower court renders its final decision, there is a small window of time during which the party may file the appeal.

Finality

Not every determination made by a judge is appeal-able. With few exceptions, only final judgments, decisions that conclude the case in that court once and for all, are appeal-able. If a particular decision was not final, it is not time for an appeal.

Throughout the course of any civil trial, the trial judge may make numerous decisions. The judge may rule on a motion to limit the scope of questions that may be asked in a deposition. Or the judge may grant or deny a request that the case be dismissed on the ground that there is insufficient evidence of wrongdoing. Any court order that does not complete the case is not considered a final order. For example, if the judge denies a motion to dismiss, the proceedings will continue and the order denying the motion is considered an interim order or interlocutory order, not a final order. Generally, interim or interlocutory orders are not appeal-able. On the other hand, if the judge grants the motion to dismiss the case, that order is final. A decision regarding the subject matter of the case has been made: sufficient grounds do not exist for the case to continue. The final decision (also called a final disposition, final judgment, or final order) disposes of the case as far as that court is concerned.

Generally, a final decision is made after a hearing. The judge or jury has heard all the evidence, and makes a decision. A finding that the plaintiff proved or failed to prove his or her case ends the litigation at that stage. The final order is appeal-able.

Timeliness

While a final decision is appeal-able; the right to appeal does not last forever. Parties are bound to keep things moving along by exercising the right to appeal within a reasonable length of time after the final judgment is rendered. Similar to statutes of limitations, every court has a rule dictating the length of time after the final judgment during which an appeal may be made. For example, in the federal system, a federal district court’s final decision generally must be appealed within 30 days (or 60 days if the United States or its agent or officer is a party).  Otherwise, the party who wishes to appeal loses that right forever.

Sometimes, there is a question as to when the final judgment of the trial court was entered. In one employment discrimination case in which a plaintiff sought back pay and other damages, a court issued an order setting forth its findings of fact and conclusions of law and stating that judgment was for the plaintiff and against the defendant. Some months later, the court issued another order awarding back pay and a retroactive promotion. Yet another order was entered in the next month, in which the court granted the plaintiff attorney’s fees and litigation expenses. A question arose about when the clock started ticking for the defendant to file a notice of appeal. Which order was the final order for purposes of appeal? The appeals court held that the last order, granting fees and expenses, was the final judgment in the case, because it dispensed with the last of the issues raised in the plaintiff’s complaint.

What is an appeal?

Appeal is the term used to describe the process by which a higher court reviews the decision of a lower (trial) court. The right to appeal an adverse legal decision is granted by the United States Constitution and the Minnesota Constitution. This appeals system provides a check on the power of a judge or jury. Judges who interpret the law erroneously will have their decisions overturned by a court with authority to do so. Judges know that an appellate court may check their governance over every case.
 
Some appeals are granted only at the discretion of the appellate court. The United States Supreme Court, because it cannot review every single case decided in the federal system, hears appeals only at its discretion.

Adverse Court Decision

A party who has had an adverse court decision made against him or her is the party with the right to appeal. (Only under very rare circumstances can a party appeal a favorable decision on the ground that he or she disagrees with the reasoning of the decision.) The party who appeals is known as the appellant. In opposition to the appellant is the appellee, the party who agrees with the outcome of the trial and will argue during the appeal that the judge or jury’s decision should be left alone.

What is Appellate Law?

All cases begin in a trial court, and at some point, the case will end in the trial court.

Early in the litigation, the judge could dismiss the case, or a final judgment could be entered after a full trial. But at some point, the proceedings in the trial court will be concluded. At that point, a party unhappy with the outcome (typically the losing side, but sometimes even the winning side) can appeal.

Appeal Begins

An appeal typically begins with filing a notice of appeal in the trial court. The party appealing — known as the “appellant” — must also designate an appellate record. The appellate record consists of materials from the trial court that the appellant would like to present to the appellate court and use in appeal.

Praise Of His Glory

Life

Him

Ephesians 1:4‭-‬23
Praise of Glory

Praise Of His Glory. Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him.

In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved.

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on us.

In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is, the summing up of all things in Christ, things in the heavens and things on the earth.

In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will, to the end that we who were the first to hope in Christ would be to the praise of His glory.

Listen

In Him, you also, after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation-having also believed, you were sealed in Him with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is given as a pledge of our inheritance, with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession, to the praise of His glory.

For this reason I too, having heard of the faith in the Lord Jesus which exists among you and your love for all the saints, do not cease giving thanks for you, while making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of Him.

I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you will know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the surpassing greatness of His power toward us who believe.

These are in accordance with the working of the strength of His might which He brought about in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come.

And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Ephesians 1:4‭-‬23

Letter

My beautiful soul mate, I hope this letter finds you all well, blessed and happy.

Its rainy and drizzly day here today. Yesterday, was 80* sunny, cray weather here. I do not care much for Southern California. Closest I ever desire to come this way again is Monterrey. I love it there.

Places We Could Check Out

I watched some silly show about mountain people locating and digging for ginseng. The show as I said is goofy but, the places they go to are beautiful! West Virginia, North Carolina, etc. These places are so beautiful. I refer to them as your forest. Just reminds me how little of our country I have seen. Motor home/trailer and property sounds better and better all the time.

Have you checked property from Grass Valley, Nevada City, Scott’s Flat lake area, up Highway 49 to almost Washington (the little town of)? Just wondering about property, I mean. I know houses are up and you’re in a lease. Just win the darn lotto and we will just buy in Folsom above Folsom Lake College. We can get a nice place up there for about $850,000 nice though.

It doesn’t really matter where we live as long as we are together! I just think the mobility of our home would be good for us both and property ownership provides stability but nothing urgent just pondering. Crazy thing is our housing market up North is going up and down here its going down must be because of all the crime down here! Shooting death and violent crime daily on the news. I can’t understand why people want to live down here! I could easily describe it as Sodom and Gomorrah, even that would only cover it lightly!

Okay, so, I get to hear your warm angelic voice tonight, it warms my heart. I’m being hopeful in that you received my letter about our business and I also hope you don’t think my idea is too crazy. I know it will/would work! I read an article in Inc. Magazine about a guy that makes $800,000 per year from two cellular accessory stores not even phones. We can sell both, just need a mobile franchise. Faith!

Time Off My Sentence

Still no notification on my end for a date change with the new GED college policy? I should gain 2 more months off but who knows? I haven’t  been notified yet.

Yeah, I heard your sweet voice Muah.

Funny how numbers have such meaning  our lives like 7 for us as others. So, Jesus cast demons into pigs, then, they ran into the river and drown and according to old law (old testament) swine/pigs are considered unclean. Well another strange fact I just learned the gestation period for wild pigs is 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days – 333 exactly 1/2 of the number of the beast! Hmm

Since, we drink the blood and eat the body (flesh) of our Lord Jesus during communion and this symbolized our joining or becoming one with Jesus could the consumption of Pork be a trick by Satan to do the same? Symbolizing him poisoning us from the inside? He (satan) used this trick before with Adam and Eve in the garden.

Another strange pork fact Hawaii is called/referred to as paradise (like Eden). What has over taken the islands of paradise causing great destruction to their beauty on an alarming scale. Pigs are net native to Hawaii. They were brought by Spanish visitors when the islands were inhabited by the native people pigs (and travelers) became a very destructive and invasive species! So, now the pig in Hawaii represents ‘innocence lost” Hmm another Eden reference I know sounds silly but, Pork stays out of my diet just in case. I know I think too much and now we are in bad graces with Iran a reactionary nuclear capable angry group of Middle Eastern Christian hating Arabs not good (also known as Persians).

Tiny Home

So our tiny home should be built of cement re bar and block with steel doors. Maybe Austin is right about Nevada, the world is going crazy! I just want my family, freedom and seclusion! Motor home property etc.

Court

I hope your court stuff goes well wish I was there to help. Could you imagine how productive you would be if while you were working. I was rubbing our back, shoulders, arms, etc. Kiss your neck and cute little cheeks. Should be much better working conditions.

Inspection

Monday May 6, 2019 no school today, darn it! Cool, cloudy and some drizzle today. Also, some inspection today was supposed to be a surprise but, they (Admin) knew so it’s a dog and pony show. All of sudden they are working on our hot water, flyers put up about TV fixes etc. Delivery truck from the lowers came up to our kitchen what a crock! Liars!! all of their pants are gonna catch fire.

Awaiting A Date

I sure can’t wait to have and exercise the privilege of worship with my gift from God, my soul mate, my best friend, my earth angel. How honor am I to receive such blessing from the creator of all things! Thank you Jesus for such a miracle.

I’m sure you have not setup my email yet. I know how busy you are my love. The only reason I mention it is I think I have a better email address…..also the first seal in revelation I dunno just a though. May name has popped up often over the last couple of weeks? Kinda strange you should have receive the letter I sent last week by now? Probably checking my letters again?

No matter, nothing juicy for them anyhow here they should just move me closer to home. On a non-adverse transfer and get me out of their hair. or even better let me out! Since, I did not do the garbage lies I was convicted of through trickery and deceit and lawlessness! Send me home, reverse my conviction and give us some new start money you , California, C.D.C.R. etc. will never hear from the …..family again. well my love guess I will scoot for now. I love, miss, appreciate, adore and desire you very much!! please give my love to mom and the kids. forever yours,  it’s still your turn for the tattoo. Muah 777
