Ruling Provides Guidance on Notice of Appeal, Los Angeles Daily Journal (April 18, 2014)

Los Angeles Daily Journal (April 18, 2014)
Filing a timely notice of appeal is critical: If you miss the deadline, the Court of Appeal will dismiss your appeal without ever considering the merits. In the Daily Journal, Alana Rotter describes how to calculate when a notice of appeal is due, including the rules that service of an order or notice of entry of judgment by mail does not extend the time to appeal from it, and that if the deadline falls on a weekend, it is automatically extended to the next day the court is open.
