§37-6-15. Unlawful act after making distress; damages.
Where distress shall be made for rent justly due, and any
irregularity or unlawful act shall afterwards be done by the
party distraining, or his agent, the distress itself shall not be
deemed to be unlawful, nor the party making it be therefore
deemed a trespasser ab initio; but the aggrieved by such
irregularity or unlawful act may, by action, recover full
satisfaction for the special damage he shall have sustained
