Agreeing with Mathieson and Gross' observations in "Review for Error", this comment explores the avowed focus on process in appellate review and questions the accuracy of the review-for procedural-errors model. After proposing addtional explanations for the disjuncture between the theory of appellate review and the practical influence of substantive concerns, the comment suggests further avenues of research, both empirical and psychological.
