RALJ 4.3: STAY OF ENFORCEMENT OF JUDGEMENT

(a) Civil Case. The superior court may stay enforcement of a judgment in a civil case after a notice of appeal has been filed. The superior court may impose the same conditions on the granting of a stay as those imposable on parties before the courts of appeals.

(b) Criminal Case. In a criminal case, the court of limited jurisdiction has authority, subject to RCW 9.95.062 and 9.95.064, to stay enforcement of the sentence pending appeal and to fix conditions of release. Where the sentence is stayed pending appeal, the court of limited jurisdiction has authority to revoke the stay upon proof of violation of the conditions of release.
