An appeal is a review of a court’s decision by another court. A party may appeal an unfavorable judgment and certain orders in an unlimited civil case made in the superior court to the Court of Appeal for the district in which the superior court is located. Generally, the appeal must be based on an argument that a legal error was made by the superior court. An appeal is not a retrial. You will not be permitted to introduce new evidence, and the appellate court will not reassess conflicting evidence. You may not appeal on behalf of a friend, a spouse, a child, or other relative (unless you are a legally appointed guardian). The following is general information about the procedures for appeals of unlimited civil cases (“unlimited civil case” generally means a civil case in which the amount in controversy is more than $25,000; see Code of Civil Procedure sections 85 and 88).
Notice of appeal tells the other party or parties in the case and the superior court that you are appealing the decision of the superior court.
