§38-3-14. Same -- Judgment against debtor pending suit.
If, pending any such suit, a judgment at law be recovered by any person against such judgment debtor, such person may present his claim to the commissioner and have it adjudicated and allowed in the same manner and to the same extent as if the judgment had been obtained before the institution of such suit. And he may present such claim to the court after the report is made, and before the entering of a decree distributing the proceeds of the sale of such real estate, and have the same adjudicated and passed upon by the court, and if found to be correct and a lien upon such real estate, the court shall allow and confirm the same, and provide for the payment thereof in the decree of sale and distribution.
