Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You are on appeal, did the appellee win the case and was given ownership of the property and sold it before you filed your appeal? Did you have a motion to stay the judgment pending appeal filed?
Thank you for your reply.
Not necessarily is a judgment automatically stayed on appeal in Texas. Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 25.1(g) says a stay is not automatic by just filing an appeal. However, the litigant filing the appeal may supersede the judgment (1) by agreement of the parties; (2) by filing a supersedeas bond; (3) by making a deposit with the trial court clerk; or (4) by providing alternate security ordered by the trial court. See Texas Rule of Appellate Procedure 24.1(a).
