§59-2-16. Taxation of costs for witnesses; entry after execution
or adjournment; assignment or transfer of costs.
The court may restrict the taxation in the costs for witnesses
to so many as may be deemed just. No entry for a witness shall be
made against a party recovering costs after execution has issued
for such party; and in no case shall there be an entry of a witness
for attendance at a term of court after the adjournment of such
term. No assignment or transfer of any costs, expenses or fees
payable out of the state treasury shall be valid unless the same be
in writing, indorsed on or annexed to the voucher issued therefor,
signed by the person entitled thereto and duly acknowledged before
an officer authorized by law to take acknowledgments of deeds or
other writings, or attested by two witnesses who shall state their
respective names and post- office addresses.
