Title 12: Court Procedure


12 V.S.A. § 1691a. Procedure for production of employee personnel records

§ 2742. Security by creditor in case of doubt as to ownership or liability of chattels to attachment or execution

When there is reasonable doubt as to the ownership of the goods or chattels or as to their liability to be taken on a writ of attachment or execution, the officer may require sufficient security to indemnify him for taking the same. If the creditor, his agent or attorney does not, within a reasonable time after the request, give the security to the officer, he may release them to the person from whom they were taken, at any time before the sale of the goods or chattels, and may take other goods or chattels, or, when permitted under section 2741 of this title, the body of the debtor, and for want thereof may return a non est inventus. (Amended 1971, No. 185 (Adj. Sess.), § 75, eff. March 29, 1972.)
