Section 12-22-25

Security for costs of appeal.

In all other cases in which an appeal is taken under the provisions of this division, the appellant, or someone for him, must give security for the costs of such appeal, to be approved by the probate judge or the clerk of the circuit court, as the case may be, and the names of such sureties must be certified with the record to the appellate court, but the filing of security for costs is not a jurisdictional prerequisite. If the appellant fails to prosecute his appeal or the judgment is not reversed or is entered against him for a less amount than the judgment of the court from which the appeal is taken, execution may issue against him and such sureties for the costs of the appeal.
