Simple Summer Helpful Hints

 
Does the Court provide forms?
NO,
but we have several handy and easy to use checklists.

For Briefs: http://www.la-fcca.org/pdf/20150507AppellantBriefWebChecklist.pdf



How do I cite a trial court exhibit?

The Court of Appeal receives the originals of the trial court exhibits. The trial court exhibits are lodged with the Court of Appeal in the same manner as they were introduced at the trial court.  Therefore, if the exhibit was introduced as P1 at the trial court, it remains P1 at the appellate court.  Additionally, the exhibits are not renumbered (or Bates stamped).  Therefore if you reference Page 25 of P1, the page and exhibit number remain the same, Exhibit P1, page 25.

 
I purchased a CD, are the trial court exhibits on it?

No, the Court of Appeal receives the originals of the trial court exhibits and they are not scanned.
