appeal

Any form of appellate review other than by one of the extraordinary writs. 4 Am J2d A & E § 2. Generally regarded as a continuation of the original suit rather than as the inception of a new action, confined normally to consideration of the record which comes from the court below, with no new testimony taken or issue raised in the appellate court. 4 Am J2d A & E § 2. To revert to a terminology arising from distinctions that are rarely recognized in modern practice, an appeal brings up questions of fact as well as of law, but upon a writ of error only questions of law apparent on the record can be considered, and there can be no inquiry whether there was error in dealing with questions of fact. Behn, Meyer, & Co. v Campbell & Go Tauco, 205 US 403, 407, 51 L Ed 858. In the Roman law, to appeal (ap-pe-lá're) is to resort to court; to sue.
