Maine Revised Statutes

§8-311. Proceedings and judgment

Such surety may thereupon take out a writ, in the form prescribed by the court, to arrest the principal, if liable to arrest, or to attach his estate and summon him to appear and answer as a defendant in the action. If, after 14 days' previous service of such process, he fails thus to appear at the time appointed and judgment is rendered for the plaintiff, it shall be against him and the other defendants as if he had been originally a party, and any attachment made or bail taken on such process is liable to respond to the judgment as if made or taken in the original action. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
