Arizona Appeal Bond Revision


Arizona State legislators recently made modifications to the state’s court bond requirements; specifically concerning appeal bonds. The new bill is named SB 1212 and modifies the cap on an appeal bond that’s required to stay the execution of a judgment in civil actions. The previous legislation required a surety bond equivalent to the full quantity of the judgment including charges, interest and any damages relating to the appeal. SB 1212 requires the bond to be equal the total quantity of damages awarded excluding punitive damages, $25 million or 50% of the appellant’s net worth, whichever is less.
