Q: Newaygo michigan 27th circuit is unable to produce transcripts for appeal what happens
The trial was a complete farce all the way threw a real circus never seen anything like it
A: An appeal can definitely still be filed ... If I recall correctly, it is done with the trial attorneys filing affidavits of what they call the relevant facts at issue were.
Is this criminal or civil? Either way, if there was a trial, you have a right to appeal. Note that there are strict timelines to follow; an appeal is not automatic, and if you miss the deadline, you may be out of luck.
You need to order the transcripts, usually from the judge's recorder. They will likely want a deposit. Depending on how long the trial was, transcripts can cost into the hundreds of dollars. If this was a criminal trial, you may be appointed counsel, who would get the transcripts for free.
If this was a civil trial, think long and hard before spending the money required to appeal. An appeal isn't a second bite of the apple; you will need to use the record (e.g. transcripts) to show some error ocurred.
