Bond and surety

The district court may require an appellant to file a bond or provide other security to ensure payment of costs on appeal. If the district court issues such an order, each surety submits to the jurisdiction of the district court and appoints the district clerk as the surety's agent for purposes of accepting service of any documents that affect the surety's liability on the bond or other undertaking. See FRAP 7, 8(b).
