§51-3-11. Effect of changing time or place of session.
When the place for holding any court, or the day for
commencing any term, is changed, or when a court fails to sit on
any day appointed for it, or to which it may have adjourned, or
when, for any reason, no court shall be held on any day within a
term thereof, there shall be no discontinuance, but every notice,
recognizance or process, given, taken or returnable to any such day
or to any day between that day and the next that the court may sit,
or to the day and place as it was before such change, and all
matters ready for the court to act upon if it had been held on any
such day, shall be in the same condition and have the same effect
as if given, taken or returnable, or continued, to the substituted
term or place, or to the next day of the same term that the court
may sit, or to the next court in course, as the case may be.
