Bond Penalty: Trial court discretion

A Maine supersedeas bond may be a requirement in the state based on the type of judgment. Pursuant to Rule 62, Maine procedure provides an automatic state in civil matters upon appeal, the appeal bond being discretionary. "(e) Stay Upon Appeal. Except as provided in subdivisions (c) and (d) of this rule, the taking of an appeal from a judgment shall operate as a stay of execution upon the judgment during the pendency of the appeal, and no supersedeas bond or other security shall be required as a condition of such stay.", is the standing practice. The modification set forth in subsection (c), "When an order for immediate execution under this subdivision is denied, the court may, upon a showing of good cause, at any time prior to appeal or during the pendency of an appeal order the party against whom execution was sought to give bond in an amount fixed by the court, . . .", clearly requires a Maine appeal bond.

Supersedeas bond requirements are different in tenancy law cases and appear to apply only to plaintiffs pursuing a vacaiton of a defendant's stay. Pursuant to Title 14, Part 7, 709 (subchapter 1.), "Upon finding a violation of the conditions for granting the stay, the Superior Court shall vacate the stay and may issue a writ of possession. The Superior Court may require the plaintiff to provide security as may be necessary to protect the defendant's interest while the appeal is pending, . . . "security" may include a bond, an escrow account, a lien, a mortgage, an order to make payments under a lease or contract as they become due or any other financial protection as is reasonably necessary to protect the interests of a party."
