§39-3-4. Loss of court records; reentries.
Where any book containing judgments, decrees, orders or
proceedings of a court, or proceedings at rules, is lost, and
there can be again entered correctly, by means of any writing,
any matters which were in such book, the court may cause its
clerk to have such matters reentered, and such entries shall have
the same effect as the original entries.
