In fact -
Under ordinary circumstances, when a trial court has issued a final ruling, a party requesting review has the file sent on to the court of appeal. When the file is in front of the court of appeal, the trial court lacks jurisdiction to do anything in the case.
But that leaves a question - since it's not the kind of appeal that goes on the shelf...
To put it another way, who has the file?
There's no doubt that the trial court *should* have the file.
If that's wrong, and if the appeals court has the file despite the fact that Ty's Notice of Appeal is reeking nonsense, Judge Chupp might not have jurisdiction to proceed right now.
