§56-7-3. Notice by commissioner.
The court ordering an account to be taken may direct that the
time and place of taking the same be published as a Class II legal
advertisement in compliance with the provisions of article three,
chapter fifty-nine of this code, and the publication area for such
publication shall be the county. The newspaper shall be designated
by the party at whose instance such publication is made or his
attorney, and if no newspaper be so designated, then the court
shall designate the newspaper. Such publication shall be
equivalent to personal service on the parties or any of them. In
any case where all persons whose interest may be affected by the
proceedings before a commissioner are known, it shall be sufficient
that, in lieu of such publication of the notice as aforesaid, such
persons, or their counsel (or one of their counsel, if there be
more than one), be served with such notice in the manner provided
by section one, article two of this chapter.
