What is the “record on appeal”?

The “record on appeal” is all of the papers filed in the Superior Court and transcripts of hearings in that court. The appellate courts will only consider the record on appeal and the law. The record may be transmitted to the Court of Appeals electronically or physically. If the paper records are physically transmitted, they will be returned to the Superior Court after the appeal is over.
