Rule 485. Bond


When a writ of error is granted and the petitioner has given no bond, the Supreme Court in granting the writ shall specify what bond shall be given; and the petitioner shall file such bond in the trial court, to be approved by the clerk of said court, and a certified copy thereof shall be at once sent to the Supreme Court. Upon the filing of said certified copy, the clerk of the Supreme Court shall issue the proper notices, provided however, that no bond may be required where the party appealing has made or shall make affidavit and proof that he is unable to pay the costs of appeal, or give security therefor, as required in appeals to the Court of Civil Appeals.
