Civil Appeals Archives

When an appeal goes through the settlement conference program

A person who is unhappy with the decision of a trial court in Nevada may decide to appeal. However, that does not necessarily mean that the case will end up before the appellate court or Supreme Court. According to the Nevada Rules of Appellate Procedure, a settlement conference program administrator will review the case, and may decide that it should be redirected to that program rather than proceeding in the appellate court.

Motion for attorney's fees in civil cases

People in Nevada who have paid for a lawyer for work on a civil case may think they can ask the losing party to pay for their legal fees. However, those who expect compensation will most likely be disappointed, as there are only certain circumstances in which the court orders the other party to cover attorney fees for these types of cases.

How cases are directed to the Court of Appeals or Supreme Court

If your legal goals were not met when you went before a Nevada district court, you may be curious about whether or not your case would be heard by the appellate or Supreme Court if you appeal. We at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., are familiar with the state's statutes regarding the appellate system and how they apply to a variety of case types.

Can a stay pending appeal help you?

If you have been involved in a Nevada court case that resulted in a judgment against you, appealing the decision right away may not be enough to prevent you from the financial cost the outcome requires. According to the Nevada statutes, you may be able to file a motion for a stay pending your appeal.

How do the standards of review affect appeals?

You lost your case in a U.S. District Court in Nevada, but that does not necessarily mean it is time to give up. The appellate court system is set up to ensure that federal law has been followed. If any errors were made during your trial, you may have another chance at a fair outcome. The results generally depend heavily on what standard of review applies to your appeal.

The differences between trials and appeals

When you decide to file a lawsuit in Nevada, you may have some idea of what to expect. However, if you need to take it to the next step with an appeal, it may not be clear how that process differs from the trial. We at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., have helped many clients through cases in the lower courts, and provided guidance through the appellate system, as well.

The role of the Nevada Supreme Court

Each state has its own court system that operates according to state laws as well as federal, and within certain limits, these may be unique. Nevada is no different in imposing its own rules and regulations, particularly when it comes to appeals. In fact, according to the Las Vegas Sun, the Nevada Court of Appeals uses a model similar to only three other states.

Working through the appeal process

For many people, disputes and legal issues in the courtroom can generate anxiety. Unfortunately, people do not always secure an outcome in their favor, some of whom may believe that a decision was unjust. If you are going through this on a personal level, the Aldrich Law Firm knows how pivotal it is for you to understand your rights and the most sensible direction forward. In Las Vegas, and in cities across the entire state of Nevada, people have been able to reverse unfair and unfavorable court decisions by working through the appeal process properly.

Appellate court decisions and what they mean

If you and another party have a dispute over a business contract, you may have felt sure that the judge in the district court would see the evidence and rule in your favor. However, even if he or she finds that the other party did not breach the contract, you may be able to file an appeal. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., our team regularly assists clients through the appellate court system.
