Municipal Court Appeals
This information only applies to those tickets or citations disposed of in a municipal court within Waukesha County.
If judgment was entered by a Circuit Court Judge or Commissioner at the Waukesha County Courthouse and you want to appeal the decision, you must file an appeal with the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.
The Wisconsin Statutes provide that any party to an action has the right to appeal (have heard again) a decision made by a municipal court judge. The appeal must be filed with the municipal court within 20 days from the day the municipal judge made a decision, or the right to appeal is given up forever. Once the appeal is filed, the case is heard by a circuit court judge in the county where the offense occurred.
The instructions for this process can be found below, but you must contact the municipality that issued the citation for the correct Notice of Appeal. It is very important that you print and follow the Instructions.
