In the past there was a small claims court, municipal court, and superior court per Calif county. Now it is small claims court and superior court per Calif. county. I lost a trial by judge suit in municipal court in 1996. I appealed to superior court. The three superior court judged sat on the appeal for 90 days after the oral argument. I was the plaintiff and massacred the three defendants in trial and the appeal. The appellate decision was for the defendants but was signed by ONLY ONE superior court appellate judge. Question: Was this appellate decision "illusury" and invalid? Did my suit conclude as a "draw"? That is, did it conclude as neither a win nor a loss for me the plaintiff and neither a win nor a draw for the defendants? Please respond. Thank you.
