The appellate process involves representation before a higher court, either in the form of a request for review of a lower court’s decision or the defense of the lower court ruling. Generally, no new evidence or issues are brought to the attention of the appellate court – in other words, facts or issues that did not come up before the trial court will normally not be heard by the higher court. Appellate Judges make their decisions based on the trial court record, applicable law, the parties’ briefs and oral argument.
