Section 6-6-483

Answer of state official garnished to show assent to judgment.

Where an official of the State of Alabama or other person designated in this division has been garnished, as provided by Section 6-6-482, and answer has been filed by said person, in accordance with the mandate of said writ, admitting that the said State of Alabama is due, or will be due, the defendant in said garnishment proceedings money for salary and has said money ready for payment when due, the said answer must also show the assent of said person that judgment may be entered in said case for the amount shown in said answer or so much thereof as may be necessary to satisfy plaintiff's judgment. In no case shall judgment against said official or other person designated in this division as the agent of the state be entered on said answer or in said garnishment proceedings unless such assent and consent to said judgment is shown in said answer. When such final judgment is so entered, after trial of said proceedings, the said judgment shall be against the official or person returning said answer as such official or agent of the State of Alabama, as garnishee, and said judgment shall show that said official or person, as such agent of the state, consented that such judgment be entered in said garnishment proceedings.
