Maine Revised Statutes

§8-109. Perishable goods

The court may make orders for the care, custody, leasing and investing of all property and its proceeds in the possession of the receiver. If any of the said property consists of live animals or is perishable or cannot be kept without great or disproportionate expense, the court may, after the return of the warrant, order such property to be sold at public or private sale. After the appointment of a receiver, upon his petition, the court may order all or part of said property, including the rights of the absentee in land, to be sold at public or private sale to supply money for payments authorized by this subchapter or for reinvestment approved by the court.
