(in some cases) appeal against
Explanation: It does depend very much on context.
If it is about an an 'afgørelse', as in
'påklager jeg hermed afgørelsen'
-- then it is an appeal against the decision or ruling.
'Afgørelsen kan påklages' appears on letters informing for instance refugees that they have not been granted asylum, but that the decision has not reached the highest instance.
Or applications for grants that have been turned down, etc.
I'm not disagreeing with any of the other answers - they all apply in the cases they explain.
