What is an Supersedeas / Appeal Bond?

After the court renders a money judgment in a case, the defendant has the ability to appeal the ruling to a higher court. Also known as an Appeal Bond, Supersedeas Bonds are required by the courts before the filing of an appeal. The bond guarantees that if the appealing party loses the appeal that they will satisfy the judgment. The bond amount varies by state but usually includes a provision for interest and court costs.
