Follow the Australian example.
Considering the history and expense already involved in this case:
Require TSCOG to deposit a security bond with the court before proceeding with the appeal process.
Enough to cover court costs, and the total value of IBM's counterclaims (with triple damages of course) in the event that TSCOG lose on appeal.
I'm sure that the Court can set the bond at a suitable value.
And if TSCOG do win anything on appeal, the bond is to be distributed among TSCOG's outstanding bankruptcy creditors. (Along with a very serious slapping for not having used this money for paying outstanding creditors in the first place.)
If you can't afford to lose, don't play.
