Charges
• Study Texas law and procedure relating to security for judgments in order to clarify the law and afford equity, while preserving the right of persons to obtain appropriate relief and access through the appellate processes in the court system. The study should address:
(1) the need to clarify the law to confirm that the courts have the flexibility and discretion in determining the amount of bond required to supersede a judgment;
(2) the desirability of providing that the posting of a bond in the required amount shall also supersede the right to obtain abstracts of judgments and full judgment liens; and
(3) whether a maximum level of bond should be established consistent with the availability of surety bonding capacity and the Texas constitutional policy of ensuring open access to the courts.
