The Appellate Case Processing Guide is designed to assist litigants through the appellate process. Under the direction of the Court’s Community Outreach Committee, the Public Information Task Team was responsible for developing the Guide in 2001. The Model is based upon the appellate flow chart adopted by the Court and included herein. Each section of this manual corresponds with a step in the aforementioned flow chart. Sections consist of 3 components: background, timeline, and required forms or paperwork. At the conclusion of each section is a sample template.
