Q: When you appeal your case, do you get to present testimony and evidence all over again? Do the judges listen to your case again?

 

A: A: No. When you appeal a case you lost at trial, the appellate court reviews the testimony and evidence that was given at the trial. They also evaluate whether the legal instructions given by the trial judge were accurate and appropriate. There is no new trial to present your appeal to the judges.
