Seeking to topple the adverse judgment and immunity from enforcement, the defendant perfects the appeal by filing the notice of appeal and posting a bond. C.C.P. section 917.1(b) requires a bond in twice the amount of the judgment, unless an admitted surety issues the bond. If a bond is issued from an admitted surety, the bond is 1.5 times the face amount of the judgment (§§ 995.610 to 995.675). Alternately, the defendant can execute a deposit in lieu of a bond (§§ 995.710 to 995.770) or offer a third-party personal surety (§§ 995.510 to 995.520).
