14.7 APPEALS IN CIVIL CASES
The general process of appealing a civil case is the same as that for appealing a criminal case. A case that is heard by the county court is appealed to the district court; a case that is heard by the district court is appealed to the court of appeals. In either case, the Colorado Supreme Court may hear a further appeal if it deems the case to be appropriate. In some situations, the party which lost at the trial court level must post a bond if it wants to appeal, ensuring that the judgment against it will be paid in the event the appeal is unsuccessful. Generally, a losing party that appeals must pay interest on the judgment for the time the case is on appeal in the event that the appeal is unsuccessful.
