§56-8-10. Death of one of numerous parties in equity.
When in any suit in equity the number of parties exceeds
thirty, and any one of such parties jointly interested with others
in any question arising therein shall die, the court may
nevertheless proceed, if in its opinion all classes of interest in
the case are represented and the interest of no one will be
prejudiced by the trial of the cause, to render a decree in such
suit as if such person were alive, decreeing to the heirs at law,
distributees, or representatives of such person, as the case may
require, such interest as such person would have been entitled to
had such person been alive at the date of the decree. The
provisions of section twenty-six, article three of this chapter
shall apply to decrees entered under this section.
