Appellate Law

Handling an Appeal in a 'Case in a Box'

Recently, one of my colleagues came into my office and asked me to step in for him on a case he was appealing. As the lawyer in our office with an appellate emphasis, I usually get consulted and pitch in when a case gets appealed, but this time he asked me to take over the entire file. The case was appealed, docketed, briefed and scheduled for oral argument in a month. Essentially, my colleague had handed me a "case in a box" and asked me to carry it the rest of the way for him.
