Supersedeas

Su`per`se´de`as
n.1.(Law) A writ of command to suspend the powers of an officer in certain cases, or to stay proceedings under another writ.

SUPERSEDEAS, practice, actions. The name of a writ containing a command to stay the proceedings at law.
     2. It is granted on good cause shown that the party ought not to proceed. F. N. B. 236. There are some writs which though they do not bear this name have the effect to supersede the proceedings, namely, a writ of error, when bail is entered, operates as a supersedeas, and a writ of certiorari to remove the proceedings of an inferior into a superior court has, in general, the same effect. 8 Mod. 373; 1 Barnes, 260; 6 Binn. R. 461. But, under special circumstances, the certiorari has not the effect to stay the proceedings, particularly where summary proceedings, as to obtain possession under the landlord and tenant law, are given by statute. 6 Binn. R. 460; 1 Yeates, R. 49; 4 Dall. R. 214; 1 Ashm. R. 230; Vide Vin. Ab. h.t.; Bac. Ab. h.t.; Com. Dig. h.t.; Yelv. R. 6, note.
