Practice. A term during which no execution can issue on a judgment. There are three classes: Those ordered by the court; Those which result from statutes or rules of court; Those which are a consequence of appellate proceedings. It is either conventional, when the parties agree that no execution shall issue for a certain period; or it is granted by law, usually on condition of entering bail or security for the money.
