Appeal: Notice of Appeal


Expert Practitioners, Judges, and the Matthew Bender Editorial Staff

Chapter Summary


This chapter discusses the procedure for filing and serving notice of appeal in the superior court, which initiates the appeal in the appropriate district of the court of appeal, as well as related proceedings to file docketing statements, when required, and to consolidate related appeals.

This chapter also discusses in detail the judgments and orders that are appealable, from which a notice of appeal may properly be taken.

The chapter includes a Research Guide, Procedural Checklists, and several forms, including a notice of appeal, a notice of cross appeal, a civil case information statement, notices of appeal from particular types of judgments or orders, and a stipulation and motion for consolidation of appeals.

Providing detailed analysis of the law along with timesaving forms, checklists and research guides, California Forms of Pleading and Practice is the leading source for up-to-date guidance on all aspects of civil actions and proceedings from pleadings to appeal. California Forms of Pleading and Practice is updated to reflect all relevant California and federal legislation, administrative regulations and procedures, judicial decisions, and shifts in the general business environment. New developments are integrated into text and forms with unparalleled quality and timeliness.
