I am appellant and I requested for oral hearing.. Oral hearing is denied in my appeal. What can I infer from this? Does it mean the appeals court (1st DCA of Florida) has no questions or clarifications needed on this appeal? Please help.
Appellee did not request oral hearing.
OA is granted if the court has questions that have not been answered by the briefs (or if there are unusual or novel questions of law that might be of interest to the legal opportunity). If the issues and arguments are clear to the court, OA will be deemed unnecessary.
Your appeal will be decided on the papers filed.
This answer does not establish an attorney client relationship and is just my opinion based upon the limited facts presented.
It means that they had no questions after reading the brief and are able to decide on the papers.
