Welcome to SDAP’s new Website. This site will provide
attorneys assistance and information concerning criminal and
juvenile appeals in the Sixth District Court of Appeal. We
would like to thank Laurel Thorpe at the Central California
Appellate Project and Jonathan Soglin and Jomo Thorne at the
First District Appellate Project for their assistance, and
Chris Myers at Glitch Design who did most of the work.
For information on how to file a notice of appeal and how
an appeal works, go to STARTING AN
APPEAL. For information concerning the Sixth District
Appellate Program, go to CONTACT
SDAP. From here, you can learn about the Program, email
staff members, read about the qualifications of panel attorneys,
and download an application to join the panel.
Panel attorneys should check the home page periodically for
announcements concerning practicing in the Sixth District
Court of Appeal. Older announcements will be found in the
NEWS portion of the Website.
This Website also provides panel attorneys assistance in legal
RESEARCH concerning criminal,
delinquency, dependency, and habeas corpus law. Recent victories
in the Sixth District Court of Appeal are listed.
Panel attorneys can obtain information concerning the rules
and guidelines for compensation CLAIMS
and download the necessary forms.
Much of the panel manual can be found under PRACTICE
TOOLS. This section contains useful information concerning
filing requirements, a directory of who to place on a proof
of service and how to contact a client or party, general information
concerning appellate practice, filing motions, briefs, and
petitions, and sample letters, motions, and petitions.
Finally, LINKS to the appellate courts,
the appellate projects, government sites, superior courts,
and other sites are provided.
