(a) In civil litigation under any legal theory involving a signatory or a successor to a signatory of the master settlement agreement, as defined in K.S.A. 50-6a02, and amendments thereto, the maximum appeal bond that any appellant in the litigation may be required to post to stay execution on a judgment during an appeal or discretionary review shall be set in accordance with existing law and court rules, except that in no case shall an appeal bond for any individual appellant and its successors, individually or collectively, exceed $25,000,000, regardless of the total value of the judgment.

(b) If it is proved by a preponderance of the evidence that the appellant for whom the bond has been limited pursuant to this section is intentionally dissipating or diverting assets outside of the ordinary course of its business for the purpose of avoiding payment of the judgment, the court shall enter such orders as are necessary to prevent the dissipation or diversion of assets.

(c) The amendment to this section shall apply to all cases pending or filed on and after July 1, 2005.
