§63-1-5. Notice, recognizance, or process given, taken, or issued
before code in force; nothing in code to operate to
discontinue any pending case.
Although a notice, recognizance, or process shall have been
given, taken, or issued before the day on which this code takes
effect, it may, nevertheless, be given, taken or returnable to a
day after such date, in like manner as if this code had been in
effect before the same was given, taken, or issued. And nothing in
this code shall operate to discontinue any cause or matter, civil
or criminal, which shall be depending and undetermined in any court
on the day before this code takes effect; but every such cause and
matter shall be proceeded in, tried and determined in such court.
