FAQ - Appealing to an Appellate Court

How do I appeal a superior court ruling to the court of appeals?

The person wanting to appeal may file a written notice of appeal no later than 30 days after entry of the judgment. The local court can inform the person of the current filing fee, if any. The appellant or cross-appellant must pay the preparation costs when ordering the necessary transcripts from either the court reporter in the superior court or the Electronic Services Office in the superior court if the proceeding was recorded electronically. A person appealing from the entry of a money judgment must deposit a supersedes bond with the superior court if the person wants to prevent the other side from collecting on the judgment until after the appeal is decided.
