“Judge Kaplan has at least entered judgment in the second Carroll trial. That starts the clock for Trump’s post-trial motions and for him to post a bond. Specifically, federal rules governing civil cases stay a plaintiff’s execution on a judgment for 30 days after the entry of judgment, which effectively means he has 30 days to provide a bond or other security to lengthen that stay pending an appeal. Trump also has 28 days after the entry of judgment to move for a new trial or to ‘alter or amend’ the judgment.” – MSNBC legal analyst Lisa Rubin, posting to Twitter.
