Sometimes a Provincial Court judge or judicial justice makes a decision that a litigant (a person who is a party in a court case) believes is wrong.
The Chief Judge of the Provincial Court does not have the power to review or change the decision of another judge or a judicial justice, so the Chief Judge is not able to deal with complaints about the outcome of a case.
The process for correcting an error made by a judge or judicial justice, overturning a Provincial Court decision, or obtaining a new trial is usually to appeal (or in some cases, to ask for judicial review) in a higher court.
You appeal the decision of a Provincial Court judge or judicial justice to the BC Supreme Court in these types of cases:
You appeal a conviction or sentence for a Criminal Code indictable offence to the BC Court of Appeal.
