And if you're into appellate stays and bonds (i.e., you're reading this blog), be sure to check out this writ here in a dispute over an interpleaded $8M and CCP 917.2:
Petitioner contends that a judgment adjudicating a party’s right to interpleaded funds, such as the judgment at issue here, is not stayed by the perfecting of an appeal unless an undertaking in a sum fixed by the trial court is given. We agree and, accordingly, grant the petition for writ of mandate.
