The result of an appeal can be:
- Affirmed: Where the reviewing court basically agrees with the result of the lower courts ruling(s).
- Reversed: Where the reviewing court basically disagrees with the result of the lower courts ruling(s), and overturns their decision.
- Remanded: Where the reviewing court sends the case back to the lower court.
There can be multiple outcomes, so that the reviewing court can affirm some rulings, reverse others and remand the case all at the same time. Remand is not required where there is nothing left to do in the case. "Generally speaking, an appellate court's judgment provides 'the final directive of the appeals courts as to the matter appealed, setting out with specificity the court's determination that the action appealed from should be affirmed, reversed, remanded or modified'".
Some reviewing courts who have discretionary review may send a case back without comment other than review improvidently granted. In other words, after looking at the case, they chose not to say anything. The result for the case of review improvidently granted is effectively the same as affirmed, but without that extra higher court stamp of approval.

Famous quotes containing the word results:
“Intellectual despair results in neither weakness nor dreams, but in violence.... It is only a matter of knowing how to give vent to ones rage; whether one only wants to wander like madmen around prisons, or whether one wants to overturn them.”
—Georges Bataille (18971962)
“Nothing is as difficult as to achieve results in this world if one is filled full of great tolerance and the milk of human kindness. The person who achieves must generally be a one-ideaed individual, concentrated entirely on that one idea, and ruthless in his aspect toward other men and other ideas.”
—Corinne Roosevelt Robinson (18611933)
“Silence is to all creatures thus attacked the only means of salvation; it fatigues the Cossack charges of the envious, the enemys savage ruses; it results in a cruising and complete victory.”
—Honoré De Balzac (17991850)
