What is the Court of Appeals?
The primary function of a Court of Appeals is to review decisions made at the trial court level by both Common Pleas and Municipal Court Judges. An Appeals Court will review trial transcripts dockets, pleadings, and appellate briefs (a written summary of facts and supporting law) filed by the parties involved in the case. Once all materials have been submitted to the Court, the parties will be scheduled for an oral argument in front of a three Judge panel. Each party will be given time to present their arguments in support of either maintaining or reversing the decision made at the trial court level. Once oral arguments are completed, the panel of Judges review all of the documentation and information provided and write an opinion either supporting or reversing the trial court decision that includes the facts and law that supports the decision made by the Judges.
