Wheatley v. Farley, 610 S.W.3d 507 (Tex. App.—El Paso 2019, no pet.).

Estate Administration




Estates Code § 351.001 exempts personal representatives from giving an appeal bond unless the appeal personally concerns the personal representative. The court held that the exemption also applies to supersedeas bonds.


Moral:  Although the Estates Code does not expressly exempt a personal representative from giving an appeal bond, the Code’s use of “appeal” bond is read broadly to include a “supersedeas” bond.
