§56-3-12. Service of summons or scire facias; finality of
judgment by default on scire facias or summons.
Any summons or scire facias against any person, including a
summons for a witness, may be served as a notice is served under
section one, article two of this chapter, except that when such
process is against a corporation the mode of service shall be as
prescribed by the two following sections. To this end the clerk
issuing such process, unless otherwise directed, shall deliver or
transmit therewith as many copies thereof as there are persons

on a scire facias or summons shall become final within twenty days
after the service of such process.
