Court Bond (Judicial)


What is a Southern California Judicial Bond?

Southern California Judicial Bond is a type of court bond that guarantees court costs are secured. Civil court proceedings require judicial bonds when someone involved in a lawsuit seeks a special right or remedy in advance of a final court decision.

If an opposing party incurs damages as a result of the special privilege granted and the court later determines the privilege was unjustified, a judicial bond guarantees that the obligee will be made whole.

Simply Put … 

In simple terms, it’s a bond filed with the court as a guarantee. For example, a losing party to a civil court action is typically required to post a Court or Judicial Bond to guarantee payment of a verdict while the appeal process is underway. Typically, a Court will not allow for an appeal of a judgment to take place until the appellant has posted a Bond to the Court in an amount that typically exceeds the amount of the judgment against the appellant in the matter at hand. Often times the amount of the bond is 125% of the verdict amount.
