How Civil Appeals Differ From Business Litigation
You cannot approach an appeal the same way you tried the original case. An appeal is not a second chance to make the same argument. Instead, an appeal is your chance to demonstrate that the court made a mistake in its initial ruling. If the judge allowed something into evidence that should have been dismissed or you believe the law was misinterpreted, you may have grounds for an appeal. Just make sure you know what you are appealing.
