This public interest film describes the functions of the appellate court system through an examination of Missouri's courts.
Abstract
Actual courtroom scenes in the State's appellate and supreme courts are depicted to illustrate the courts' functions and the judges' and attorneys' roles. The film notes that appellate court judges must carefully examine all aspects of a case and that they are appraised according to how many times their decisions are overturned on appeal.
