Interlocutory Appeals

Interlocutory appeals may be filed in the circuit court or in the Court of Appeals. SADO's Defender Interlocutory Appeals Book (2023) provides thorough information about how to navigate the appellate process, and provides samples and advice to attorneys who are new to these appeals. 

Practitioners may also need to file a motion to stay in the trial court and/or a motion to stay in the Court of Appeals, together with a motion for immediate consideration of the application for leave to appeal.
