Maine Revised Statutes

§8-310. Principal made party in action against surety

If the principal in any such bond resides in the State when an action is brought thereon, and is not made a party thereto, or if at the trial thereof, or on proceedings on a judgment against the sureties only, he is in the State, the court, at the request of any such surety, may postpone or continue the action long enough to summon or bring him into court.
