What is Collateral?

Collateral can be property pledged to secure a loan or debt, usually funds or personal property as distinguished from real property (but technically collateral can include real estate). It can also refer to something that is going on at the same time parallel to the main issue in a lawsuit or controversy which may affect the outcome of the case, such as adoption of a new federal regulation or a criminal trial of one of the parties.
