The Appeals Process in Missouri

When an attorney in the state of Missouri submits an appeal to the court, a request is made to a higher court to review a decision made by a lower court. An appeal is not a redo of the case that was just decided. In fact, no new evidence can be submitted for consideration in an appeal—only the facts that were previously known can be reviewed. The role of the appeals court is limited to reviewing the trial record and determining whether the original judge acted within their discretion. If the appeals court finds that the judge did not act improperly, the decision of the original judge will be upheld. Otherwise, it may be overturned.
