Additions by User:Jz1234567[edit]

@DissidentAggressor: I didn't notice any specific factual errors in the changes to this article. Can you explain why you removed the content that was added by User:Jz1234567? Jarble (talk) 06:01, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

I think I understand the problem now: one of the additions includes a source that is not considered reliable. Jarble (talk) 06:02, 19 May 2015 (UTC)
@Jarble: Yeah, that editor appears to only be here to promote The Dissident Aggressor 13:08, 19 May 2015 (UTC)

Article Overhaul[edit]

I am currently in the process of overhauling this article. I will return over the next few days to continue developing this. Feel free to pitch in if you like -- I plan to add discussion about the "originalist"/"living constitution" debate and the role of appellate judges in the judicial system.

Beyond the history section there's hardly any specific examples of how courts of appeal works in civil law systems. Moreover, all the specific examples only mention the USA. It also mentions juries despite the fact that plenty of legal systems never (or at least very rarely) use juries and all (or nearly all) criminal or civil cases are only handled by judge(s). Either the article should be slightly reworded to avoid common-law/USA bias or how other justice systems handle appeals need to showcase. (talk) 20:04, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

That's something I've been meaning to do for a long time. If you have sources that discuss appellate law and procedure in civil law countries, please feel free to add that information. Best, -- Notecardforfree (talk) 21:20, 27 May 2016 (UTC)
