District Court Rulings

You will be notified of the District Court ruling. The District Court will either affirm, reverse, and/or remand the case for further proceedings. District Court could also dismiss the appeal.

If the District Court “affirms” the decision of County Court, it means the County Court decision is upheld and any outstanding matters, such as the sentence, must be addressed by County Court.

If the District Court “reverses” the judgment, the County Court decision is nullified and District Court will give specific instructions on what the County Court should do with the case.

If the District Court “remands” the case back to County Court, it usually means the District Court found an error was made and the District Court specifies what type of hearing should take place in County Court, for example, a new trial.

If the District Court “dismisses” the appeal, it usually means you did not follow proper procedure for filing the appeal and the judgment of County Court stands. All outstanding matters, such as the sentence, will be addressed by County Court.
