§53-1-12. Distribution of levy under mandamus to satisfy judgment
against a political subdivision.
Wherever a writ of mandamus, issued to enforce the laying of
a levy to satisfy a judgment against a political subdivision of the
state, would produce a disturbance in the administration of the
financial affairs of the political subdivision not necessary to the
protection and enforcement of the right of the creditor, the court
may order that the levy be distributed equally over a period of
years not to exceed ten, and shall allow the creditor interest, not
in excess of the legal rate, upon the installments.
