  Britain.tv Wikipedia - Appeal
An appeal by leave or permission requires the appellant to move for leave to appeal; in such a situation either or both of the lower court and the appellate court have the discretion to grant or refuse the appellant's demand to appeal the lower court's decision.
Generally speaking the appellate court examines the record of evidence presented in the trial court and the law that the lower court applied and decides whether that decision was legally sound or not.
In an appeal on the record from a decision in a judicial proceeding, both appellant and respondent are bound to base their arguments wholly on the proceedings and body of evidence as they were presented in the lower tribunal.

 ECJBlog: Case C-17/05, Cadman
The Court held that, as a general rule, recourse to the criterion of length of service was appropriate to attain the legitimate objective of rewarding experience acquired which enabled the worker to perform his duties better.
The Court held that in Danfoss, it did not, however, exclude the possibility that there might be situations in which recourse to the criterion of length of service must be justified by the employer in detail.
The Court now added that where a job classification system based on an evaluation of the work to be carried out was used in determining pay, there was no need to show that an individual worker had acquired experience during the relevant period which had enabled him to perform his duties better.

Motorola has said that the Court of Appeal of England and Wales dismissed a number of appeals brought by Cem Uzan and Aysegul Akay, members of the Uzan family of Turkey, thus upholding the Worldwide Freezing Orders.
The Court of Appeal rejected the appeals of various lower Court decisions relating to the appropriateness of the Worldwide Freezing Orders, ancillary Orders requiring Cem Uzan and Aysegul Akay to attend for cross examination on their assets, and the length of prison terms imposed against them in light of their contempt of Court.
The Court of Appeal also accepted that without the Worldwide Freezing Orders, there was little doubt that Cem Uzan and Aysegul Akay would continue to dissipate their assets in an attempt to make them judgment proof or to otherwise secrete their assets.

Second, I outline the approach of English law, drawing attention to a series of recent Court of Appeal decisions in England and Wales that give some guidance on the weight to be given to forgiveness in the sentencing decision.
The court must pass what it judges to be the appropriate sentence having regard to the circumstances of the offence and of the offender subject to two exceptions:- i) Where the sentence passed on the offender is aggravating the victim’s distress, the sentence may be moderated to some degree.
As a matter of principle, the victim of a crime cannot tell the court that because he or she has forgiven the perpetrator the court should treat the crime, in effect, as if it had not happened.
