An appeal is a mechanism by which a losing party may have an unfavorable judgment or order reviewed by a higher court. Appellate law begins where most other litigation ends. There is no discovery, and the appellate record is limited to what was presented in the trial court. An appeal is heard by a multi-judge appellate panel and is decided almost entirely on the written briefs. The procedural and strategic issues on an appeal are very different from those involved in litigation. Appeals must be filed within a short time period after the judgment or appealable order is entered.
