§38-3-14. Same -- Judgment against debtor pending suit.
If, pending any such suit, a judgment at law be recovered by
any person against such judgment debtor, such person may present
his claim to the commissioner and have it adjudicated and allowed
in the same manner and to the same extent as if the judgment had
been obtained before the institution of such suit. And he may
present such claim to the court after the report is made, and
before the entering of a decree distributing the proceeds of the
sale of such real estate, and have the same adjudicated and
passed upon by the court, and if found to be correct and a lien
upon such real estate, the court shall allow and confirm the
same, and provide for the payment thereof in the decree of sale
