If a party is not satisfied with the result after a trial, then they have the right to appeal the case to the Indiana Court of Appeals to be reviewed by a panel of Judges. No new evidence is presented on appeal. Typically, the opinion is handed down without an opportunity to have a hearing.
If either party remains unsatisfied with the outcome, they also have the right to appeal the case to the Indiana Supreme Court to be reviewed by another panel of judges. The Supreme Court has the right to accept or deny the transfer of a case.
The decision to appeal is a difficult decision. Considerations including the likely outcome, cost, and time involved in appeal are all important. Individuals may want to meet with a trial attorney and an appellate attorney to balance these considerations before making a final decision.
