Maine Revised Statutes

§1-507. Inspection of register's conduct of office

Every judge of probate shall constantly inspect the conduct of the register with respect to his records and the duties of his office, and give information in writing of any breach of his bond to the treasurer of his county, who shall bring civil action. The money thus recovered shall be applied toward the expenses of completing the records of such register under the direction of said judge and the surplus, if any, shall inure to the county. If it is not sufficient for that purpose, the treasurer may recover the deficiency from the register in a civil action. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
