Q. How to file a appeal
A: First, I am not a MS lawyer. But generally, you file a notice of appeal with the trial court, stating that you would like to appeal the judgment of the trial court to the appropriate appellate court. The form is simple, just the case number and case number, and a brief statement about noticing the appeal. There is usually a fee to note the appeal. Then, also generally, you have to fill out a form detailing your case, case number, name of the parties, and their counsel (if any), the procedural status of the case, the issues on appeal, etc. That form is filed in the appellate court. (Usually, that form is provided by the clerk of the lower court but perhaps you can get it online.) Usually, the time to note an appeal is 30 days after the final judgment. That is a strict rule, that is, 31 days won't do it. BUT check the Mississippi Rules, please!
Q. Its been 32 days since my trial. Can i still file an appeal or motion for new trial? Is it 30 Business days or just 30
A: First of all, I am not a GA attorney. That being said, if this was a criminal proceeding, you have 30 days from sentencing. Regardless, it's 30 calendar days not 30 business days for an appeal. You could still file a motion for new trial with trial court, however, that motion --generally--will not suspend the time for an appeal.
Q. In AZ, what are the legal reasons allowed to overturn an appeal from an arbitration civil suit?
A: The case on appeal will be heard--on the issues that appellant rose.
