§ 10-5-24. Release of stock or trust estate by plaintiff.
In case the writ shall have been returned to the court to which it is made returnable, and duly entered in the court, or in case the officer who served the writ shall, from any cause, be unable to accept the bond and release the shares or personal estate in the hands or possession of the trustee from the attachment, then the bond given to release the attachment shall be delivered to the plaintiff, or his or her attorney named on the writ, the bond running to the plaintiff, and with surety to the satisfaction of the plaintiff or the plaintiff's attorney; and upon the acceptance of the bond by the plaintiff or the plaintiff's attorney, the plaintiff or his or her attorney shall upon receipt of the bond give to the defendant a certificate, signed by the plaintiff or his or her attorney, that he or she has accepted the bond and released the shares or personal estate from attachment. In the case of the refusal of the plaintiff or his or her attorney to act upon the bond or to receive a proper bond and give such certification, the defendant may petition the court to which the writ is returnable, or if appellate proceedings have been taken may petition the court to which the proceedings have been taken, to accept a bond running to the plaintiff and satisfactory to the court and release the shares or personal estate from attachment.
