Wyoming Supersedeas Bond (Appeal Bond ~ Wyoming)

Bond Penalty: Judgment + costs, interest, and damages for delay

A Wyoming supersedeas bond is required of parties that seek a stay of execution on a judgment pending further proceedings or appeal. Pursuant to Rule 4.02 of Wyoming Court Rules, "an appellant that seeks a stay on appeal may file with the trial court a supersedeas bond in an amount as fixed by the court with an approved surety company. The Wyoming appeal bond must guarantee satisfaction of the underlying judgment together with costs, interest, and damages for delay, and to satisfy in full any modification of the judgment that the appellate court may award." Subsections b. and c. address those non-money judgments (not otherwise secured), to wit;

  1. When the judgment, . . . determines the disposition of the property in controversy, as in real actions, replevin, and actions to foreclose mortgages, or when such property is in the custody of the sheriff, or when the proceeds of such property or a bond for its value is in the custody or control of the court, the amount of the Wyoming supersedeas bond shall be fixed at the sum as will secure the amount recovered for the use and detention of the property, the costs of the action, costs on appeal, interest, and damages for delay. When appellant has already filed a surety bond in the trial court, a separate supersedeas bond need not be given, except for the difference in amount as determined by the trial court to be attributable to the appeal.
  2. When the judgment directs the execution, assignment or delivery of a conveyance or other instrument, appellant may execute, assign or deliver the conveyance or other instrument, leaving same in the custody of the clerk of the trial court in which the judgment was rendered, there to remain and abide the judgment of the appellate court, and in such case appellant shall give bond only for costs on appeal and damages for delay.

The Rule further stipulates that executors, administrators and guardians seeking a judgment appeal are not exempted from giving a supersedeas bond.
