Change to Pennsylvania Rules of Appellate Procedure

Pennsylvania Has a New Supersedeas Rule


Effective today, Pennsylvania has changed Rule 1736 of its Appellate Rules. Now a party that is exempt from providing security while a case is on appeal is exempt if the appeal is taken to the Supreme Court of the United States. The former rule did not clearly include appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court. The new rule will prevent unnecessary skirmishes on adequate security while cases are on appeal.
