Section 6-7-50

Use of nonconsenting person's name by another plaintiff; nonconsenting person's right to recovery.

If any person necessary to be joined as plaintiff in any action or proceeding shall, upon request, not consent to join therein, his name may, nevertheless, be used by the other party plaintiff, upon filing with the clerk of the court an obligation with good and sufficient sureties, to be approved by the judge or the clerk of the court in which the action or proceeding is to be commenced, shown by his endorsement of approval thereon, to protect, save harmless and indemnify the person whose name is so used from the payment of any costs, judgment or expenses in said action. If, however, the plaintiffs shall recover a judgment in such action or proceeding, the person so refusing to allow the use of his name shall not be entitled to receive any part thereof until he pays the expense incurred in giving the obligations, his equitable share of the costs and expenses of the litigation, including plaintiff's attorney's fees, and discharges the obligation.
