Agent For Acceptance Of Service

n. an appeal is an accusation of a person, in a legal form, for a crime committed by him; or, it is the lawful declaration of another man's crime, before a court of law. Another usage is the act by which a party submits to the decision of a superior court, a cause which has been tried in an inferior tribunal. Acceptance of an appeal by a higher court generally annuls the judgment of the inferior court, so far that no action can be taken upon it Home
