Maine Revised Statutes

§3602. Boomage paid by officer; lien not defeated by note; notice

The officer making such attachment may pay the boomage thereon, not exceeding the rate per thousand on the quantity actually attached by him, and return the amount paid on the writ of attachment, which shall be included in the damages recovered. The action or lien is not defeated by taking a note, unless it is taken in discharge of the amount due and of the lien. Such notice of the action as the court orders shall be given to the owner of the logs or lumber, and he may be admitted to defend it.
