In rendering a decision, judges must base their ruling on then existing laws in the state of Mississippi. However, everyone makes mistakes, even judges. For trials involving family law, many people may leave court knowing that the Judge did not rule correctly on their case. For trials depending upon a jury for a verdict, many people may leave court knowing the jury did not deliver the right verdict.
Fortunately, in both circumstances, the Courts recognize mistakes occur and created a provision allowing you to appeal any verdict, be it a wrongful felony conviction or an improper ruling of a Judge denying you custody of your children. In either case, the Courts allow you to appeal the decision to the Supreme Court of Mississippi. Appeals must be filed within thirty (30) days of the date when the Court entered the final order or decree.
