  • § 3403. Perishable property- Notice of sale; appraisers

    (a) When an attachment is made of living animals or of perishable goods or chattels which are liable to waste or liable to deteriorate appreciably in value by keeping or which cannot be kept without great or disproportionate expense, and the parties do not consent to the sale thereof, upon written application of either of the parties interested therein, made to the attaching officer, the property so attached shall be examined, appraised and sold, or otherwise disposed of and notice thereof given by the officer to the other parties in such manner as the Supreme Court shall by rule provide for service of summons.

    (b) Such officer shall prepare a schedule of the property and appoint three disinterested persons acquainted with its value as appraisers to be sworn by him or her. If such appraisers are satisfied that the defendant in the action has been informed of the attachment of the property, they shall appraise the same as provided by law. (Amended 1971, No. 185 (Adj. Sess.), § 94, eff. March 29, 1972.)
