WEFOUNDDecision of the Appeal Section, War Department Claims Board, in Re, Claim of Wool Growers, Central Storage Co: Case No; 2621; August 25, 1920 (Classic Reprint)


OTTAWA — The Supreme Court of Canada has agreed to hear an appeal in the case of an Ontario trucker who was acquitted in the death of an Indigenous woman in an Edmonton motel room.

In March 2015, Bradley Barton was found not guilty by a jury in the death of Cindy Gladue, a sex-trade worker whose body was found in a bathtub. Gladue bled to death after a night of what Barton called consensual rough sex.

The Alberta Court of Appeal ordered a new trial. It ruled that serious errors were made during the trial and in the judge’s charge to the jury about Barton’s conduct and the sexual assault law as it pertains to consent.

CHARLESTON, W. Va. — All applicants for FEMA recovery assistance have the right to appeal if they are dissatisfied with FEMA’s determination letter.

The first step is to read the FEMA determination letter carefully to understand why FEMA decided that your application was “ineligible.” If you think there has been a mistake or if you have any additional questions, you may file an appeal.

All appeals must be in writing. In your appeal, explain why you think FEMA’s decision is not correct. The appeal should include any documentation that FEMA requests or that supports your claim. If the person writing the appeal letter is not you or a member of your household, you must sign a statement which states that the writer is authorized to act for you and your household.

The losing party in a decision by a trial court in the federal courts normally is entitled to appeal the decision to a federal court of appeals. 

Although some cases are decided based on written briefs alone, many cases are selected for an "oral argument" before the court. Oral argument in the court of appeals is a structured discussion between the appellate lawyers and the panel of judges focusing on the legal principles in dispute. Each side is given a short time — usually about 15 minutes — to present arguments to the court.

Most appeals are final. The court of appeals decision usually will be the final word in the case, unless it sends the case back to the trial court for additional proceedings, or the parties ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case. In some cases the decision may be reviewed en banc, that is, by a larger group of judges (usually all) of the court of appeals for the circuit.

In law , an appeal is the process in which cases are reviewed, where parties request a formal change to an official decision. Appeals function both as a process for error correction as well as a process of clarifying and interpreting law. [1] Although appellate courts have existed for thousands of years, common law countries did not incorporate an affirmative right to appeal into their jurisprudence until the 19th century. [2]

When considering cases on appeal, appellate courts generally affirm, reverse, or vacate the decision of a lower court. [31] Some courts maintain a dual function, where they consider both appeals as well as matters of "first instance". [32] For example, the Supreme Court of the United States primarily hears cases on appeal but retains original jurisdiction over a limited range of cases. [33] Some jurisdictions maintain a system of intermediate appellate courts, which are subject to the review of higher appellate courts. [34] The highest appellate court in a jurisdiction is sometimes referred to as a "court of last resort". [35]
