In an appeal from a Limited case in Superior Court (Appellate Division), if you appeal from post-judgment motions (i.e. Mot to Vacate judgment and such), does that mean that you can file, yet, another Notice to Appeal from the original judgment and a secondary one for the order denying that motion? And are they considered separate appeals or do you just appeal from the final judgment and then include the new motions decisions in that appeal? Or do you file two appeals? One for the original judgment and another one for the order?
You file one notice of appeal, and identify the judgment and the post-judgment orders that you are appealing from on the face of that notice. Not all post-judgment orders are directly appealable, however. Be sure to read Code of Civil Procedure 904.2 very carefully.
