This would render the process useless. Those courts simply don't have
the time for all the cases settled that way. The current process works
just fine. Any court can make such ruling and get overruled and there
is precedent.

The process of appeal is one of the threads by which all our rights hang,
without it we have no rights because there is no process for stating them.
Thus any attack on this process is a broad attack on all rights.
