Appellate Practice : Inadequate Brief – Pro Se Appellant – Small Claims Petition

Where the brief of a pro se appellant in a small claims case did not contain a proper statement of facts, the points relied on did not state a legal reason for reversal and did not set out the applicable standard of review, the brief substantially failed to comply with Rule 84.04, and the appeal must be dismissed.

Appeal is dismissed.
