Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure
“(d) Stay Pending an Appeal.
(1) By Supersedeas Bond. If an appeal is taken, the appellant may obtain a stay by supersedeas bond, except in an action described in Rule 62(a)(2). The bond may be given upon or after filing the notice of appeal or after obtaining the order allowing the appeal. The stay is effective when the supersedeas bond is filed.
(2) By Other Bond or Security. If an appeal is taken, a party is entitled to a stay by providing a bond or other security. Unless the court orders otherwise, the stay takes effect when the court approves the bond or other security and remains in effect for the time specified in the bond or other security.
NRS 20.037 – Limitation on amount of bond to secure stay of execution of judgment pending appeal; exceptions.
” 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law or court rule, and except as otherwise provided in this section and NRS 20.035, if an appeal is taken of a judgment in a civil action in which an appellant is required to give a bond in order to secure a stay of execution of the judgment during the pendency of any or all such appeals, the total cumulative sum of all the bonds required from all the appellants involved in the civil action must not exceed the lesser of $50,000,000 or the amount of the judgment.
2. If an appellant is a small business concern, the amount of the appellant’s bond required pursuant to subsection 1 must not exceed the lesser of $1,000,000 or the amount of the judgment.
3. If the plaintiff proves by a preponderance of evidence that an appellant who posted a bond pursuant to subsection 1 or 2 is purposefully dissipating or diverting assets outside of the ordinary course of its business to evade the ultimate payment of the judgment, the court may, if the court determines that such an order is necessary to prevent such dissipation or diversion, require the appellant to post a bond in an amount that does not exceed the full amount of the judgment.
4. The provisions of this section do not limit the discretion of a court, for good cause shown, to set the bond on appeal in an amount less than the amount otherwise required by law.
5. For the purposes of this section, “small business concern” has the meaning ascribed to it in the Small Business Act, 15 U.S.C. §§ 631 et seq., and any regulations adopted pursuant thereto.”
**In Federal cases the bond requirement is governed by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure “62(b) Stay by Bond or Other Security. At any time after judgment is entered, a party may obtain a stay by providing a bond or other security. The stay takes effect when the court approves the bond or other security and remains in effect for the time specified in the bond or other security.”**
