Case Synopsis

An appeal is properly taken from an amended judgment only when the amendment “disturb[s] or revise[s] legal rights and obligations which the prior judgment had plainly and properly settled with finality."

Thus, an appeal from a post-judgment award of attorney’s fees and costs must be timely filed, because its incorporation into an amended judgment does not disturb or revise the legal rights and obligations of the parties.
