Upturning is a judgment of a higher court setting aside a lower court's judgment in respect of a matter. For instance, a party may lose a case before the Court of Appeal and therefore files an appeal against such judgment to the Supreme Court in which the latter court now gives a different judgment in favor of the party appealing.
