Trump's appeal oral arguments will be in front of the first all-Black women Appellate bench [View all]

If and when Donald Trump decides to appeal his criminal conviction, oral arguments will likely be heard first by a midlevel appeals court panel comprised of five African American women.

Another possibility is that he could appeal directly to the Court of Appeals, which usually only happens in extreme circumstances.

The historic court makeup was announced in February of 2024 during Black History Month.
