The first essential steps to a successful appeal occur in the trial court. Lawyers at the trial court must ensure that any issues they may wish to raise in a potential appeal are “preserved” for appeal at the trial court level. The concept of preservation of error sounds simple enough: an appellate court will not consider any issue that has not been first properly presented to and ruled upon by the trial court. But the variety of rules and ways in which different types of issues must be preserved create complexities that may be fatal to a later appeal.
In this interactive program, presenters will discuss various common issues presented at the trial court level and the steps necessary to preserve those issues for later review by an appellate court. Topics covered will include jurisdictional challenges, summary judgment rulings, objections to improperly admitted or excluded evidence, objections to compensatory and punitive damages, and others.
Presenters: Griffin Terry Sumner and Casey Wood Hensley, Frost Todd Brown, LLP.
