How is a party notified of the court's decision in an appeal?

Decisions in appeals take the form of an "opinion" or an "order".  Opinions and orders are handed down by the Court to the Clerk.

The Clerk emails copies of orders and opinions to each attorney who has entered an appearance in the case.

For a party unrepresented by an attorney, the Clerk sends copies of orders and opinions by regular U.S. mail to the address provided by the party on his/her Notice of Appeal or appearance form.
