Section 11-51-154

Bond to dissolve temporary injunctive relief - Execution; security; exception.

(a) When the court has granted a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction, it shall not be dissolved until the respondent has executed a bond in an amount fixed by the court with sufficient surety to be approved by the register or clerk, containing a waiver of exemptions as to personal property, conditioned to pay such judgment and lawful court costs as the court upon final hearing may enter against the respondent, except as provided below.

(b) The surety bond required to be made in this section shall remain in full force and effect as security for any judgment and court costs the court may enter and tax against the respondent, but if the respondent takes an appeal and gives a supersedeas bond, upon affirmance of the appeal, the surety bond provided by this section shall become null and void.

(c) The respondent shall not, however, be required to post the surety bond required in subsection (a) if the respondent can show to the satisfaction of the register or clerk that he or she has a net worth, based on fair market value, of twenty-five thousand dollars ($25,000) or less, including his or her homestead, and the final assessment is equal to or less than the respondent's net worth.
