Rhode Island Appeal Bond Amendment

Rhode IslandThere is a new law involving appeal bonds classified as SB 2509. The new Rhode Island bill caps the supersedeas bond at $50 million for all appellants together despite the worth of the judgment; this is done to stay the carrying out of a judgment associated to the Master Settlement Agreement. SB 2509 became law even though the Governor did not provide his signature. The new law was enacted on 07/08/2008.
