Finality of Orders — Legal and Practical Implications
Recognizing a final order is a critical aspect of both litigation and appellate analysis. Once a trial court enters a final order, specific legal and practical issues involving timing and jurisdiction arise. Accordingly, the failure to recognize a final order can have devastating consequences. On the other hand, mistaking a non-final order for a final order can result in premature appeals and cause unnecessary delay in the prosecution of a case. Jack R. Reiter, a board certified appellate attorney and co-Chair of the appellate practice group at GrayRobinson, P.A., will discuss this topic and address both the legal and practical implications of recognizing finality of orders.
