  • My case was dismiss from king county court to day , can I appeal to Washington subprime court?

    appeal my case

    Kenneth’s Answer

    It is possible to seek direct review by the Washington State Supreme Court, but they accept very few direct appeals. I have successfully obtained direct review several times, but again, it is quite rare. I agree with others responding here that you should contact an appellate lawyer immediately. Time is very short.

  • When can I appeal a denial of my motion to compel discovery of electronic records?

    The denial occurred in Washington Superior Court - appeal would be to Division II - I would rather wait until after trial to appeal.

    Kenneth’s Answer

    Unless there are Findings that there is no just reason for delay and a direction for entry of a final order or judgment under CR 54 (b), you can wait to appeal until a judgment or other final order is entered. Discovery orders generally are interlocutory, non final orders. You may lose your opportunity to effectively challenge the order though, if the appellate court does not find a prejudicial abuse of discretion.
