2A:16-3. If appellant, in an appeal from a judgment of the Superior Court, deposits with the clerk of the court such an amount as shall be deemed by that court to be sufficient, as security for the payment of such amount as may finally be determined to be due in the action, the court may by order discharge the real estate of appellant from the lien of the judgment appealed from.
The amount deposited shall be subject to the lien of the judgment appealed from and of any subsequent judgment recovered in the action, and shall be retained by the clerk until the final determination of the action.
When the order has been filed and the deposit made as required, the clerk shall enter in the margin of the record of the judgment or at a discernible place at the entry of the judgment, the words "lien of judgment discharged by order of the court," with the date of the discharge. Thereupon and thereafter the real estate of appellant shall be absolutely discharged and freed from any claim on account of the judgment appealed from or the action in which the judgment was rendered.
