RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE
Stay of proceedings to enforce judgment.
60-262. Stay of proceedings to enforce judgment. (a) Automatic stay; exceptions for injunctions and receiverships. Except as stated in this section, no execution may issue on a judgment, nor may proceedings be taken to enforce it, until 14 days have passed after its entry. Unless the court orders otherwise, an interlocutory or final judgment in the following actions are not stayed after being entered, even if an appeal is taken:
(1) For an injunction; or
(2) for a receivership.
(b) Stay pending the disposition of a motion. On appropriate terms for the opposing party's security, the court may stay the execution of a judgment, or any proceedings to enforce it, pending disposition of any of the following motions:
(1) Under K.S.A. 60-250, and amendments thereto, for judgment as a matter of law;
(2) under subsection (b) of K.S.A. 60-252, and amendments thereto, to amend the findings or for additional findings;
(3) under K.S.A. 60-259, and amendments thereto, for a new trial or to alter or amend a judgment; or
(4) under K.S.A. 60-260, and amendments thereto, for relief from a judgment or order.
(c) Injunction pending appeal. While an appeal is pending from an interlocutory order or final judgment that grants, dissolves or denies an injunction, the court may suspend, modify, restore or grant an injunction on terms for bond or other terms that secure the opposing party's rights.
(d) Stay with bond on appeal. If an appeal is taken, the appellant may obtain a stay by supersedeas bond except in an action described in subsection (a)(1) or (a)(2). The bond may be given upon or after filing the notice of appeal. The stay takes effect when the court approves the bond.
(e) Stay without bond on an appeal by the state, its officers or its agencies. The court must not require a bond, obligation or other security from the appellant when granting a stay on an appeal by the state, its officers or its agencies or on an appeal directed by a department of the state.
(f) Appellate court's power not limited. This section does not limit the power of the appellate court or one of its judges or justices:
(1) To stay proceedings, or to suspend, modify, restore or grant an injunction, while an appeal is pending; or
(2) to issue an order to preserve the status quo or the effectiveness of the judgment to be entered.
(g) Stay with multiple claims or parties. A court may stay the enforcement of a final judgment entered under subsection (b) of K.S.A. 60-254, and amendments thereto, until it enters a later judgment or judgments, and may prescribe terms necessary to secure the benefit of the stayed judgment for the party in whose favor it was entered.
