Section 27-32-36

Assessments - Order to pay - Judgment.

(a) Upon the return day of the order to show cause provided for in Section 27-32-34, if the member or subscriber does not appear and serve duly verified objections upon the commissioner, the court shall make an order adjudging that such member or subscriber is liable for the amount of the assessment against him, together with costs, and that the commissioner may have judgment against the member or subscriber therefor.

(b) If, on such return date, the member or subscriber appears and serves duly verified objections upon the commissioner, there shall be a full hearing before the court, which, after such hearing, shall make such order as the facts shall warrant.

(c) Any such order shall have the same force and effect, shall be entered and docketed and may be appealed from as if it were a judgment in an original action brought in the court in which the proceeding is pending.
