SECTION 45-32-37

   § 45-32-37  Immediate payment of compensation – Expediting proceedings. – In any proceedings for the assessment of damages for real property so taken by any agency the following provisions are applicable:

   (1) Upon the application of any party in interest and upon joinder of all other parties in interest, the court, on conditions that it may deem proper, may order that the money deposited in the court, or any part of it, be paid immediately, without interest for or on account of the just compensation to, be awarded in the proceeding. If the damages finally awarded in respect to the real property, or any part of the damages, exceeds the amount of the money so received by any person entitled to it, the court shall enter judgment against the funds so deposited in court or, in default of it, against other property of the agency for the amount of the deficiency plus interest on the deficiency and costs. If the judgment entered is less than the amount withdrawn, then, and in that event, judgment shall be entered for the agency for the difference between the amount withdrawn and the amount of the judgment plus interest on the overpayment and costs.

   (2) At any time during the pendency of the action or proceeding, the agency or an owner may apply to the court for an order directing an owner or the agency, as the case may be, to show cause why further proceedings should not be expedited, and the court may, upon application, make an order requiring that the hearings proceed and that any other steps be taken with all possible expedition.
