Appellee

The party to a lawsuit or administrative hearing who previously won a judgment that the other party (called the appellant) is trying to overturn. For example, if Joe sues Bob for $1 million and Joe wins, Bob may appeal to a higher court to reverse the ruling. In this case, Joe is the appellee.
