  1. The fact that the landlord sued and won is not breach of contract. However, if you believe there are legal reasons why the outcome was incorrect, you can appeal.


  2. You should consult with a local attorney to assist you. There are deadlines to heed when considering an appeal. Depending on when the judgment was rendered, there may be alternatives to an appeal.
