Lets Certify It
April 20, 2015
So you have a really tough legal issue in your case. Neither the lawyers nor the judge quite know what to do with it. Someone comes up with the brilliant idea: "Let's certify that for appeal." Oh, if it were only that easy. While the appellate rules of many courts provide some mechanism for certification, an interlocutory appeal of any kind is an exception to the general rule of only one appeal per case, which comes at the end of all proceedings. As such, parties seeking to avail themselves of an early appeal may find the path more challenging than it would appear.
