Appellate procedure is the body of law that sets out the rules and standards that courts follow when adjudicating a request to change an official decision of a trial or administrative court. The Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure govern, in the Florida Court system, how an appeal may be commenced, what kind of notice (if any) is required, the types of briefs, pleadings or statements of case, motions, and orders allowed in appeals, the timing and manner of the appeal, the conduct of appellate hearings, the process for decisions, various available remedies, and how the courts and clerks must function. The Florida Supreme Court enacts, and may modify at any time, the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure. From Wikipedia. The Florida Rules of Civil Procedure govern the same procedures before Florida's trial courts.
