Supersedeas Bond Proceedings

A plaintiff can enforce his or her judgment as early as thirty days after the judgment is signed. To prevent execution of the judgment, and subsequent seizure of the defendant’s property, the defendant must gather evidence and post a supersedeas bond. This suspends the enforcement of the judgment until the appellate process is complete, allowing the defendant to seek reversal of the judgment without losing substantial assets or declaring bankruptcy.

At Roach & Newton, we are experienced in uncovering evidence and developing effective strategies for an affordable supersedeas bond, preventing the loss of assets during the appellate process.

Selected Representations:

  • Following a $51 million jury verdict, the defendants engaged Roach & Newton as appellate counsel. Roach & Newton developed the strategy, supporting evidence, hired the proper experts and crafted the winning arguments to support a $2 million supersedeas bond.
  • Despite a judgment of over $4 million dollars, Roach & Newton developed the appellate arguments to support a ‘zero’ supersedeas bond. This prevented the seizure of the defendants assets during the appeal on the merits of the judgment.
