THE HONORABLE JOHN C. COUGHENOUR
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
CASE NO. C18-1385-JCC
BELLEVUE PARK HOMEOWNERS
ASSOCIATION, et al.,
This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff’s counsel’s unopposed motion to stay
enforcement of the judgment pending appeal (Dkt. No. 225).
The Court’s previous orders set forth the relevant background for this motion in detail, so
the Court addresses only the essential facts here. (See Dkt. Nos. 167, 218.) The Court ordered
Plaintiff’s counsel to pay Defendant Bellevue Park Homeowners Association $6,165 to
reimburse the Association for the attorney fees it incurred in filing a meritorious motion for a
protective order. (See id.) Plaintiff’s counsel has since appealed the fee award (Dkt. No. 223) and
now moves to stay enforcement of the judgment pending the outcome of the appeal (Dkt. No.
225). Plaintiff’s counsel proposes to deposit $6,165 into the Court’s registry as security. (Id.) The
Association does not oppose. (Dkt. No. 226.)

judgment as a matter of right if he posts a bond in accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 62[b].” 1 Am.
Mfrs. Mut. Ins. Co. v. Am. Broadcasting-Paramount Theatres, Inc., 87 S. Ct. 1, 3 (1966). Rule
62(b) authorizes a party to post “a bond or other security.” A “monetary deposit equal to the
amount of the bond” is a sufficient security. W.D. Wash. Local Civ. R. 65.1(a)(1). Therefore, the
Court GRANTS Plaintiff’s counsel’s motion and ORDERS:
1. Proceedings to enforce the Court’s judgment are STAYED.
2. Plaintiff’s counsel shall deposit six thousand one hundred sixty-five dollars
($6,165) into the Court’s registry as security.
DATED this 16th day of February 2021.
John C. Coughenour
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
The Court cited to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 62(d), but the substance of that Rule was
moved to Rule 62(b) in 2018. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 62 advisory committee’s note to 2018
