FAQ - Appealing to an Appellate Court

I filed a document with the superior court, but it is not included on the appellate index. Why not?

Most often this occurs because the document was filed after the superior court record was transmitted to the court of appeals. If the appellate court requires the document, it will issue a memorandum after briefing is completed that requests any additional filings submitted to the superior court that were filed after the initial transmission of the record to the court of appeals.
