Maine Revised Statutes

§8-303. Agreement with sureties for joint control

It shall be lawful for any party of whom a bond, undertaking or other obligation is required to agree with his surety or sureties for the deposit of any or all moneys and assets for which he and his surety or sureties are or may be held responsible with a national bank, savings banks, safe-deposit or trust company, authorized by law to do business as such in this State, or with other depository approved by the court having jurisdiction over the trust or undertaking for which the bond is required, or a judge thereof, if such deposit is otherwise proper, for the safekeeping thereof, and in such manner as to prevent the withdrawal of such money or assets or any part thereof, without the written consent of such surety or sureties, or an order of such court or judge thereof, made on such notice to such surety or sureties as such court or judge may direct. Such agreement shall not in any manner release from or change the liability of the principal or sureties as established by the terms of the said bond. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
