§51-2-3. Adjourned terms.
If any term of a circuit court is about to end without
dispatching all its business, the judge thereof may, by an order
entered of record, adjourn the holding of such court to any future
day on which he is not required by law to hold a court in some
other county; and all causes on the docket of such court, and not
otherwise disposed of, shall stand continued to such adjourned day.
The court may, in its discretion, require the jury summoned to
attend such term to attend as such on the adjourned day, or may
require a new jury to be drawn and summoned in the manner required
by law; and all witnesses summoned to attend in causes so continued
to such adjourned term shall attend the term without being again
summoned. All judgments, orders and decrees rendered and made by
such court before or during the day on which the court adjourns to
such future day, as aforesaid, shall have the same force and effect
in all respects as if the court had finally adjourned on that day.
