§56-8-9. Discontinuance for failure to prosecute or pay court
Any court in which is pending any case wherein for more than
one year there has been no order or proceeding but to continue it,
or wherein the plaintiff is delinquent in the payment of accrued
court costs, may, in its discretion, order such case to be struck
from its docket; and it shall thereby be discontinued. A court
making such order may direct it to be published in such newspaper
as it may name.
