Monroe is reviewing an appellate case for class and must correctly identify the parties to the case. in the case, the original defendant (franklin) is appealing his conviction by the state of idaho. in the appeals case, franklin is known as the: a. respondent. b. defendant. c. appellant. d. appellee.
An appellant party is somebody who applies to a higher court to request the court to reexamine the decision that is made by a lower court. A litigant must show that he has adequate justification for a request, which are normally characterized by the resolution, so as to challenge a judgment.
So option (c) is the correct option
The answer is: The appellant
In an appellate court the losing party filling an appeal is called the appellant, basing its case in legal errors committed that may have impacted the court´s decision. The appellee (the winning party) then presents its case trying to show that the trial court´s decision was correct and no legal errors affected that decision.
