Rule 354. Cost Bond (1962)
The appellant shall execute a bond to be approved by the clerk, payable to the appellee in a sum at least double the probable amount of the costs in the trial court and the cost of the statement of facts and transcript, to be fixed by the clerk, less such sums as may have been paid by appellant on the costs, conditioned that appellant shall prosecute his appeal or writ of error with effect, and shall pay all the costs which have accrued in the trial court and the cost of the statement of facts and transcript. Each surety on the bond shall give his post office address. Appellant may make the bond payable to the clerk instead of the appellee, and same shall inure to the use and benefit of the appellee and the officers of the court, and shall have the same force and effect as if it were payable to the appellee; or in lieu of a bond, appellant may deposit with the clerk cash equal to the estimated costs in the trial court and the cost of the statement of facts and transcript, less such sums as have been paid by appellant on the costs, and in that event the clerk shall file among the papers his certificate showing that the deposit has been made and copy same in the transcript, and this shall have the force and effect of an appeal bond.
Amended by order of April 12, 1962, eff. Sept. 1, 1962: Provisions added requiring that bond or deposit in lieu thereof cover the cost of the statement of facts and transcript. Note regarding 1946 amendment has been rewritten.
