In most civil appeals, you must designate the record on appeal. “Designating the record” means that you must let the superior court know what documents and oral proceedings, if any, to include in the record that will be sent to the appellate court. The “Record on Appeal” refers to the documents to be printed by the appellate court’s clerk’s office and included between the colored sheets. Copies of the record are provided to each judge or justice who will decide the case. A notice of appeal—a written document filed by the appellant with the court and a copy of which is sent to the appellate—is the initial step in the appeals process. It informs the court and the party in whose favor a judgment or order has been made that the unsuccessful party seeks a review of the case.
