2012 Statute


60-705.Plaintiff's bond. (a) Form and contents. When a bond is required, the bond shall be executed by the plaintiff and one or more sufficient sureties in a sum double the amount of the plaintiff's claim, or such lesser amount as shall be approved by an order of the judge, to the effect that the plaintiff shall pay to the defendant all damages which the defendant may sustain by reason of the attachment if wrongfully obtained, or from a wrongful levy thereof if such levy was directed by the plaintiff or plaintiff's attorney. The bond shall be examined by the judge as to its sufficiency and, if approved by the judge, such approval shall be noted thereon.

(b) Insufficiency. If at any time it shall be made to appear to the judge that the bond given by the plaintiff is insufficient in amount, or that any surety therein has died, or has removed from the state, or has become or is likely to become insolvent, the judge on reasonable notice to the plaintiff may order another bond and such further security to be given as shall seem necessary. If the plaintiff shall fail to comply with such order, within the time prescribed by the judge, the attachment shall be dissolved at the plaintiff's cost.
