Understanding The Grounds For An Appeal
Most people are familiar with some of the glaring errors that can be used to challenge an order or judgment — a legal error or an instance where evidence and testimony were compromised by illegal actions. However, there are other factors that may warrant the reversal of a verdict, including:
- Procedural errors of the law
- The evidence does not support the ruling
- The law has been misinterpreted
