Section 6-5-148

Closing place pending final decision - Release of property on bond.

The owner or owners of any real property or personal property closed or restrained, or to be closed or restrained, may appear at any time between the filing of the complaint and the hearing of the application for a permanent injunction, and, upon payment of all costs incurred and upon the filing of a bond payable to the state by the owner of the real property, with sureties or a surety company to be approved by the register or clerk in the full value of the property to be ascertained by the court or the judge, conditioned that such owner or owners will immediately abate the nuisance and prevent the same from being established or kept until the decision of the court or judge shall have been entered on the application for a permanent injunction, then, in that case, the court or judge, if satisfied of the good faith of the owner of the real property and of innocence on the part of any owner of the personal property of any knowledge of the use of such personal property as a nuisance and that with reasonable care and diligence such owner could not have known thereof, shall deliver such real or personal property, or both, to the respective owners thereof and cancel or refrain from issuing at the time of the hearing on the application for the injunction, as the case may be, any order or orders closing such real property or restraining the removal or interference with such personal property. The release of any personal property or real property under the provisions of this section shall not release it from any judgment, lien, penalty, or liability to which it may be subjected by law.
