Can I Appeal A Judge’s Decision On My Case?
You have a legal right to appeal a decision from a judge that you feel was not correct, or in your best interest. When you make an appeal, it usually goes to the Nevada Supreme court, and then it is assigned to the court of appeals, or it can be handled by the same Nevada Supreme Court.
It is usually not done with the judge that rendered the original decision, it is reviewed by a higher court, the appeals court. They will look at the evidence that was presented to the trial court, to decide whether some legal error was made.
I want to be clear that you understand that. To make sure that a legal error was made. Not that the decision that was made was a decision that was against you, you weren’t happy with it. And therefore, you want another bite of the apple.
It must be something that was legally wrong. Something that the court, the judge originally making the decision did wrong.
You won’t be able to submit new evidence. The appeals judge will only look at what you submitted to the trial judge
Depending on what the appeals court decides, the decision can either:
1) Be set aside
3) It can modify the trial court’s judgment.
4) It can even make a new trial, an order for a new trial.
There are three reasons, why you would want to appeal:
One, the judge made an error of law.
Two, the evidence and the facts did not support the decision that the judge came with.
Three, the judge could have abused his/her power in making the decision during the trial.
Remember that appeals are complicated, they are expensive, they are lengthy. So, you do not want to file an appeal simply because you were unhappy with the results of the trial and the ruling. Remember that prior to filing an appeal.
