That which may be taken before a higher court for review, as an appealable order; capable of being subjected to an appeal of felony. "Appealable" in its proper sense denotes susceptibility to direct appeal, as distinguished (1) from "reviewable" - that is, open to consideration by the appellate court on the record as made up for appeal from the judgment-and (2) from being appealable in the discretion of the trial judge. Collins v Miller, 91 App DC 143, 198 F2d 948, 37 ALR2d 746. Anno: 37 ALR2d 753.
