§34-2-4. Recovery of money paid into state treasury under this article.
After any such decree for the payment of such residuum of a decedent's estate, or the proceeds of the sale of any such derelict property or property having no rightful owner, any person who had not asserted a claim before the sale or decree, who may be entitled to such residuum or derelict or other property, may recover the net proceeds paid into the treasury under such decree. The same may be allowed by the auditor, or, if the claim be rejected by him, it may be recovered in the manner provided in article two, chapter fourteen of this code, for recovering claims against the state.
