What are acceptable reasons for the Plaintiff to appeal a verdict in civil court when the judgement was in her favor

Thank you for your post. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns. If the judgment was in her favor, then that makes it tough. Typically whatever was not in her favor can be appealed, and also if there was an error that did not consider some part of the argument, that may also be appealed. But generally appealing a positive verdict is not done short of some sort of a very substantial error. The reason for that is the substantial risk that a judge may consider such an appeal as being 'frivolous' if there is no good cause, and may even then consider reversing part or all of the verdict against the petitioner for review. But again, some error or mistake can be reintroduced and reevaluated if a judge made such an error. Sincerely, ***** *****
