The term "overturned" in an appeals court decision usually means that the appeals court has determined that the decision of the court below is wrong. Usually, there is a phrase after the term "overturned," such as reversed or remanded. If the decision is reversed, that means that the appeals court has ruled that the opposite of the decision appealed from should occur. If the decision is remanded, that means that the appeals court has directed the lower court to take additional Testimony or consider additional factors and make a news ruling.
