What is a motion for rehearing and should I file one?
A motion for rehearing in an appellate case is similar to a petition for rehearing filed that is filed in the trial court. The motion for rehearing is used to suggest how the appellate court erred in its decision to affirm or reverse the trial court.
A motion for rehearing should be filed with caution and should not be used merely as a vehicle to reargue the points raised in the appellate briefs.
