Which appellate court will decide my appeal?

California:  There are six appellate districts in California. Your appeal will be heard in the district where your case was heard in the superior court. The larger districts are split into multiple “divisions.”

Federal: The federal appellate court system is divided into regional “circuits.”  Your appeal will be heard in the circuit court of appeals in the geographic region where your case was heard in the district court.
