Common Pleas Court
504 South Broadway
Second Floor Courthouse
Greenville, Ohio 45331
H1: Civil Procedure > Stays of Judgments > Appellate Stays > Supersedeas Bonds
See Ohio Rule of Civil Procedure 62(B)
For a stay of execution of a judgment under ORCP 62(b), an “adequate supersedes bond” could be reasonably construed to mean no bond at all, if the trail court felt that none was necessary.
Procedural Posture: Plaintiff was granted judgment against the defendant in a previous matter. Defendant now comes before the Court for a stay of execution of the judgment previous granted, so that Defendant can appeal the decision. Defendant has also asked the court that no supersedeas bond be required.
Outcome: The Court finds that the request for stay is reasonable and grants the request. The Court also finds that according to Civil Rule 62(B), in the absence of a supersedeas bond being posted with the Clerk of Courts, the Court could not stay execution of the judgment. A supersedeas bond is approved in the amount of $5,000, which Defendant may deposit with the Clerk of Courts.
