Section 40-10-8

Trial of cases; issuance of decree; continuance.

Such cause shall be triable at the term named in said notice; and, unless the cause is contested at the trial term, the judge of probate shall forthwith issue his decree for the sale of lands, but if the cause is contested, the court with the written consent of the taxpayer and the tax collector, filed in the case and noted on the docket, may for good and sufficient reason continue any cause, but such continuance shall not be beyond the next succeeding term. The fact of such agreement shall be noted on the docket, and such continuance shall not necessitate a republication of the notice.
