Well, the alternative is either:

1) a special election for every appeal (2 nday lead time or whatever), which is going to make for a *lot* of special elections and special vote countings and special headaches for the Administrator, or

2) have an appeals court of probably 3 judges to judge the appeal.  Which could easily take an nweek by the time one appoints all 3 judges and manages to get them all to submit their ruling.

I don't like waiting up to 2 nweeks either, but it seems the least fiddly method of doing it.  Minimal overhead.

And in most cases it won't be that long -- generally any judgement submitted on ndays 1 through 6 should allow enough lead time for someone to appeal it onto the current nweek's ballot.
