A respondent may bring a cross appeal, meaning a request that the court vary a different part of the order already being appealed. For example, in a motor vehicle accident case, the Supreme Court judge may decide that the plaintiff and defendant were equally at fault for the accident, and the plaintiff may be awarded $50,000 for personal injuries suffered in the accident. The plaintiff may decide to appeal the decision on the ground that he suffered severe injuries and was entitled to a greater sum to compensate for his injuries. After the plaintiff files their notice of appeal regarding compensation the defendant, may decide to appeal the decision on the ground that he was not at fault for any part of the accident. In this example, the defendant is the respondent on the appeal involving compensation and the appellant on cross-appeal on the question of fault.
