The remittitur is the final document issued in an appeal. It's filed at least 7-8 weeks after the Court of Appeal issues its opinion. If the case has already reached that stage, your options are very limited. Parties can ask the court to recall a remittitur and reopen an appeal, but they need to have a very good reason why they didn't act sooner.
