Why you should attend:

This CLE webinar will provide appellate and trial counsel with an analysis of supersedeas bonds, the process of staying a judgment and securing the bonds, and rule-based and discretionary alternatives to a full supersedeas bond in federal courts. The panel will offer best practices to meet the security requirements to stay an adverse judgment during appeal.

Description: A judgment creditor may seek to collect from a judgment debtor’s assets even if the debtor has appealed the judgment. Counsel for the judgment debtor must take immediate steps to shield the debtor’s assets from a judgment creditor while the appeal unfolds. Traditionally, the judgment debtor has to post a security to cover the judgment amount, plus interest and costs. And the ever increasing size of damages awards creates greater financial hardships for judgment debtors, particularly in the current economy. As a result, counsel must understand bonding options, alternatives to bonding, and how to obtain a stay pending appeal.

Listen as our panel of appellate practitioners discusses supersedeas bonds, analyzes the process of staying a judgment and securing the bonds, and offers rule-based and discretionary alternatives to a full supersedeas bond. The panel will outline best practices to meet the security requirements to stay an adverse judgment execution during an appeal.
