Motions to Request a Re-Trial, Rehearing, or Appeal:

     This page is continued from Every Type of Motion >>>> Posttrial Motions:


motion for new trial – request a court to vacate its final judgment & order a new trial due to insufficient evidence, newly discovered evidence, jury misconduct, etc.  Often this motion is required before raising such a matter on appeal.

motion for rehearing – request another hearing of a case, motion, or appeal usually to consider an alleged error or omission in the courts judgment or opinion.

motion for repleader – an unsuccessful party’s posttrial motion asking that the pleadings begin anew because the opponent joined the issue on an immaterial point.

motion for leave to appeal – request an appellate court review a relevant interlocutory order that was found to be irrelevant & thus was not admitted within the previous court’s trial.

application for leave to appeal – ask an appellate court to hear an appeal when the party has no appeal by right or when the party’s time limit for an appeal by right has expired.
