Stub[edit]

I removed the stub status. The article isn't perfect, isn't exhaustive, and needs expansion, but it's not a stub anymore.--Lindsay (talk) 18:16, 9 December 2007 (UTC)

Either incomplete article, or misleading title[edit]

An appellate court's jurisdiction includes not only review of lower court orders. It also has jurisdiction to issue stays, order restitution, pemit appeal to a still higher court, and a number of other things that are incidental to, but necessary for the exercise of, its power of review.
