Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

Your designation of the matter can be different than opposing party if you have differing opinions. So they do not have to necessarily be the same if you are arguing different issues. The appeals court looks at your arguments as to the issues of error that you cite as your reasons for the appeal and they will look at the record on appeal from the lower court. They will not look at any new evidence or anything that was not raised in the lower court during the initial case.
