Chapter 1 - PRACTICE AND PROCEDURE PROVISIONS COMMON TO COURTS
§ 11-1-23 - Court or judge may require new security

MS Code § 11-1-23 (2015) What's This?

Each court, and the judge thereof in vacation, and any of the judges, if more than one compose the court, in all cases not especially provided for by statute, may require any bond, recognizance, obligation, or undertaking of any kind in any legal proceeding, of which the court has cognizance, which is shown to be insufficient, to be substituted by a new one, with sufficient sureties; and for a failure to comply with the order of the court or judge in the matter, the court or judge may make such order as may be proper in the case, and may direct such process as may be necessary or proper to enforce it; but notwithstanding the discharge of a supersedeas, injunction, attachment, or other process in consequence of such failure, a judgment or decree may be given on the bond or other obligation, or liability on it may be enforced by action or otherwise, as if it had not been held to be insufficient; but if done in vacation, five days' notice of the time and place of making application for the order shall be given to the opposite party; and in all cases reasonable time shall be allowed for giving new bond, upon such terms as the court or judge may prescribe.
