What are Grounds for Appeal in Missouri?
“When reviewing a court-tried case, this Court will affirm the judgment of the trial court unless there is no substantial evidence to support it, unless it is against the weight of evidence, unless it erroneously declares the law, or unless it erroneously applies the law. Murphy v. Carron, 536 S.W.2d 30, 32 (Mo. banc 1976); Ta Realty Assocs. Fund V, L.P. v. NCNB 1500, Inc., 144 S.W.3d 343, 346 (Mo.App. E.D.2004).” K.O. Real Estate, LLC. v. O’Toole, 291 S.W.3d 780 (Mo. App., 2009).
It is often incredibly difficult to prove that there is no substantial evidence or the ruling is against the weight of the evidence because even a mediocre lawyer can almost always meet those burdens in the case.
Thus, as a practical reality, most Missouri appeals are made on the basis of the erroneous declaration or application of the law.
If the opposition appeals, regardless of their grounds, you should always consult with an attorney to determine whether it is prudent to continue litigating and fighting. This will be an important decision because there is usually a significant sum of money and substantive rights on the line.
Our lawyers are well-equipped and eager to help you fight the appeal.
