Appeals

How to file an appeal depends on what type of decision you are appealing:

  • Appeal of a Conciliation Court Order or Judgment
  • Appeal of a District Court Order or Judgment
  • Appeal of a Government Agency Decision

The sections below link to resources for filing appeals for each type of decision above.

Appeal of a Conciliation Court Order or Judgment

To appeal an order or judgment from Conciliation Court, you must file the paperwork in the district court of the county where the Conciliation Court case was filed. More on how to appeal a Conciliation Court judgment


Appeal of a District Court Order or Judgment

To appeal an order or judgment from district court (other than from Conciliation Court), you must file the paperwork through the Clerk of Appellate Courts Office.  For more on how to appeal from a district court order or judgment, visit the Court of Appeals Help Topics.

If you already appealed your case to the Minnesota Court of Appeals or Minnesota Supreme Court and it was "remanded" back to the district court, you need to contact the judge's clerk or court administration at the district court with questions about the next steps in the case.

Appeal of a Government Agency Decision

If you wish to appeal a decision made by a Minnesota government agency (e.g., over proposed sanctions against a daycare provider license, the issuance of an administrative penalty order, etc.), you may be entitled to appeal the decision to the MN Office of Administrative Hearings (OAH).
