§38-6-6. Disposition of surplus proceeds.
When property, the sale of which is indemnified, sells for
more than enough to satisfy the execution or distress warrant
under which it is taken, the surplus shall be paid by the officer
into the court to the office whereof the indemnifying bond is
required to be returned, or as such court may direct. Such court
may make such order for the disposition thereof, either
temporarily until the question as to the title of the property
sold is determined, or absolutely, as in respect to the rights of
those interested may seem to it proper.
