Thank you for your new question.
The determination of the validity of any discretionary ruling made by a judge is under the "abuse of discretion" standard. This is one of the hardest standards to meet for a person filing an appeal. Under abuse of discretion you must show that no other reasonable judge hearing the same evidence and facts could have reasonably reached the same conclusion. You can imagine how difficult that is to prove. This is why many appeals of rulings that are discretionary to the court are denied.
Also, if you file what they believe to be a frivolous appeal, you will end up paying the attorney's fees for the other party. So if you think your case is weak, you have a good chance of getting hit hard with their attorney's fees for the appeal.
Affidavits are not evidence, they are hearsay. They cannot be considered by the appellate court and the appellate court can only consider what was presented in the trial court below, no new evidence.
If you have evidence of perjury, which you can file a motion to reconsider/vacate based on newly discoverered fraud and attach the affidavits to that motion, you would still have to have every one of those people who wrote the affidavit appear in court and testify in order to prove your case. An affidavit is hearsay because it cannot be questioned by the other party and thus deprives them of their constitutional right to due process under the confrontation clause (to confront and question witnesses against them).
It sounds like you are trying to grasp at straws with this to delay the inevitable and what is going to happen is you are going to end up getting the bill for the opponent's attorney's fees for you doing so.
