§5005. Summary trial; motions for new trial; when judgment effective and executory

All such suits shall be summary in their nature, and shall be tried without the intervention of a jury. Either party thereto may make motions for new trials, in the same manner and form and on the same ground in and on which such motions may be made before the district courts, but such motions must be made within three days after final judgment. All such motions must be made and disposed of before the final adjournment of the session at which the judgment may have been rendered. Upon the expiration of the delays for making motions for new trials, no motion for a new trial having been made, or on the overruling of such motion, if one has been made, the judgment being signed, shall take effect and be executory.
