2016 Statute


60-713.Settlement of conflicting claims. Any person claiming an interest in any property attached shall be permitted to intervene in accordance with K.S.A. 60-224 (a), and in the discretion of the judge any creditor of a party if the creditor's claim is liquidated in amount may be permitted, to intervene in the attachment proceedings, or may be joined as a party thereto in accordance with K.S.A. 60-219 (b), and the court shall adjudicate their respective rights in accordance with the following rules:

(a) Process. Process shall be served on parties joined under this section in the same manner and with the same effect as is provided in article 3 of this chapter.

(b) Multiple attachments. An officer having several orders of attachment subject to being levied on the same property shall levy the same in the order in which they were received by said officer. If there are several attachments issued out of different courts, all questions arising under this section shall be determined by the court out of which there was issued the first attachment served. The clerk of the court which determines such questions shall promptly certify the proceedings to any other court in which proceedings are affected thereby.

(c) Representation of passive parties. If any party to the proceedings, whether an original party or one who has been subsequently joined, fails to assert a right or a defense available, and such failure is prejudicial to the rights of some other party, the latter may assert the same for the protection of such party's own interest.

(d) Fraudulent conveyances. The grantee of any interest in attached property, which interest was received fraudulently, may be joined for the purpose of barring such interest, setting aside such conveyance, or obtaining such other relief as justice may require.
