Scope and Content

Scope and content: Documents filed by the litigants in an action before the appellate courts that summarize the facts and discuss the legal issues of the case. Documents include the Brief of Appellee, the Brief of Appellant, and the Reply Brief of Appellant. The briefs summarize the nature of the case, the questions at hand, the arguments presented by the appellee and appellant including cited rulings to previous cases, conclusions, and the final ruling. Earlier briefs are entitled Brief and Argument of Defendant in Error and Brief of Plaintiff in Error. The reasons for appeal involve a variety of legal issues such as not having a fair trial, new evidence to be presented, violations of due process or other constitutional rights, and poor trial conduct among lawyers. The cases involve civil and criminal offenses from rape, murder, and drug possession to lesser matters such as appealing denied claims for worker's compensation or automobile related incidents. The briefs are organized by case number.
