Who we serve

In addition to Trial Court decisions, Appeals Court justices also hear appeals of decisions of 3 state agencies: the Appellate Tax Board, the Industrial Accident Board, and the Commonwealth Employment Relations Board. Appeals Court justices do not retry cases - they only review decisions for errors of law and whether the errors affected the outcome. The court has 25 justices.
