Orders made by judges can be appealed to a higher court. If an order was not rendered pursuant to applicable law, a party can appeal a court order. However, not all court orders are subject to appeal. Interlocutory appeals, which are orders that are made before the final judgment is entered, are generally not appealable. In addition, post-judgment orders that are entered before a final judgment are not immediately appealable, and do not become ripe for appeal until a final judgment is made.
A court reporter transcribes the testimony in a court proceeding. If either party would like to appeal the court’s decision, a court reporter is crucial. If a court reporter is not provided by the courts, the parties may hire one under California Rules of Court, rule 2.956( c). If the parties fail to hire a court reporter, then no transcripts will be made. If there are no transcripts of the proceedings the appellate court cannot review the evidence. The reviewing court will not know the arguments each party made, or the facts admitted, assumed or judicially noticed. The moving party in an appeal, would not have evidence that there was an abuse of discretion. Because the court of appeal views all decisions in the light most favorable to the ruling court’s decision, an appeal would be fruitless without a transcript.
