Agree - this ruling seems to deviate from the normal process. DISGUSTING. n/t iluvtennis Mar 25 #29
In a majority of states, the law now caps the amount of supersedeas bond that can be required. onenote Mar 25 #83
It is well within the court's statutory authority to reduce or even forgo any bond requirement onenote Mar 25 #63
