Appellate courts are the part of the judicial system that is responsible for hearing and reviewing appeals from legal cases that have already been heard in a trial-level or other lower court. Trial court In trial courts, peoples’ actions are measured against the law. the actions can be judged in one of two ways: by a group of citizens called a jury, or simply by a judge. Trial courts hear and try cases for the first time. The five trial-level courts are superior, state, juvenile, probate, and magistrate courts.
Civil Law cases most likely will serve no jail time and penalties will be fines. They are introduced by a "private party" called a plaintiff. If the judge sees the case in favor of the plaintiff, the defendant will have to pay money to the plaintiff out of "preponderance of evidence".
A criminal case is introduced by the government, who claims that one has committed a crime. The defendant a right to testify to defend their self, but if found guilty of breaking the law he can be punished by jail time, fine, or both. Guilt is harder to prove in criminal cases because the prosecutor must prove the defendant is guilty with a reasonable doubt.
