As customer in a court of appeal
If a party is discontent with the decision of a district court, it is usually possible for the party to appeal against the decision to a court of appeal. In most cases, leave for continued consideration granted by the court of appeal is required before the court admits the appeal for consideration. When necessary, the court of appeal requests a response to the appeal from the opposing party. If the court of appeal admits the appeal, the proceedings before it concern the matter decided by the district court to the extent referred to in the appeal and the response. The court of appeal examines whether the decision of the district court must be amended and, if so, how.
The court of appeal decides cases either on the basis of written trial documents in a written procedure or in a main hearing, where it may also hear the parties and witnesses.
