On appeal, the only thing that can be addressed are arguments that were made in the lower court. If you did not argue that the filing in Florida was first, then it is not an issue on appeal. If you did argue it, the erroneous date could be the lynch pin of the argument if you can demonstrate when the filing actually occurred and how the error was made. Of course, unless the Court of Appeals allows you to reopen the record to supplement evidence, you would be restricted only to the evidence previously produced in the lower court.

The court made a ruling based on what it deemed correct. They do make errors. That is why we have appellate courts. They are not simply trying to stick it to one party or another.
