RULE 3-632. STAY OF ENFORCEMENT
(a) Automatic. Except as otherwise provided in this Rule, enforcement of a money judgment is automatically stayed until the expiration of ten days after its entry.
Cross reference: For the definition of “money judgment,” see Rule 1-202.
(b) Discretionary. In its discretion and on such conditions for the security of the adverse party as are proper, the court may stay enforcement of a judgment pending the disposition of a motion for a new trial filed pursuant to Rule 3-533, a motion to alter or amend a judgment filed pursuant to Rule 3-534, or a motion to revise a judgment filed pursuant to Rule 3-535.
(c) Multiple Claims. When a court has entered a final judgment under the conditions stated in Rule 3-602, the court may stay enforcement of that judgment until the entering of a subsequent judgment and may prescribe such conditions as are necessary to secure the benefit of the judgment to the party in whose favor the judgment is entered.
(d) Pending Appeal. Except as provided in this section and in section (e) of this Rule, a stay pending appeal is governed by the procedures set forth in Rules 8-422 through 8-424. References in those rules to the Court of Special Appeals shall be regarded as references to the circuit court having jurisdiction of the appeal. If the court determines that because of the nature of the action enforcement of the judgment should not be stayed by the filing of a supersedeas bond or other security, it may enter an order denying a stay or permitting a stay only on the terms stated in the order.
(e) Injunction Pending Appeal. When an appeal is taken from an order or a judgment granting, dissolving, or denying an injunction, the court in its discretion may suspend, modify, restore, or grant an injunction during the pendency of the appeal upon such terms as to bond or otherwise as it considers proper for the security of the adverse party.
(f) Foreign Judgment. A stay of enforcement of a foreign judgment, as defined in Code, Courts Article, § 11-801, is governed by Code, Courts Article, § 11-804.
(g) Power of Appellate Court Not Limited. The provisions of this Rule do not limit any power of an appellate court to stay proceedings during the pendency of an appeal or to suspend, modify, restore, or grant an injunction during the pendency of an appeal or to make any order appropriate to preserve the status quo or the effectiveness of the judgment subsequently to be entered.
