The National Law Journal
Interlocutory Appeals are permitted in a wide variety of circumstances. But what happens to the rest of the case while the appeal is pending? Generally, the district court retains jurisdiction over other aspects of the case, but the extent of the court's authority to act, and its discretion to stay further proceedings, depend on the type of interlocutory appeal and the circumstances presented.
