Appeal Bond (Supersedeas Bond)


Appeal Bond (Supersedeas Bond) Information

The surety bond is supplied by the appellant (plaintiff) to appeal the court's judgment and is typically in the amount of the original judgment. The purpose of appeal bonds is to protect the court from costly frivolous appeals.
