§38-4-27. Disposition of surplus received by officer; disposition of money not paid over when execution stayed.
Where an officer has received money under execution, if any surplus remain in his hands after satisfying the execution, such surplus shall be repaid to the debtor; and if the debtor or his personal representative obtain an injunction or appeal staying an execution, in whole or in part, before money received under it, or any part of it, is paid over to the creditor, the officer shall repay such debtor the money so received and not so paid over, or so much thereof as the injunction or appeal may extend to, unless otherwise directed by law, or the order of the court.
