§56-4-68. Setting cause in equity for hearing.
Whenever a suit in equity is matured at rules as to all of the
defendants, it shall be the ex officio duty of the clerk, as soon
as the same is matured, to set the case for hearing as to them. If
the suit be matured as to only a part of the defendants, the
plaintiff may appear at rules and have it set for hearing as to
such part. If one month elapse after the answer of a defendant is
filed, without the case being so set and without a demurrer being
filed to his answer, such defendant may appear at rules and have
the case set for hearing as to himself.
