Nebraska Revised Statute 25-10,101

Chapter 25 Section 10,101


Bond; objections to sureties; waiver; liability of officer.

The defendant may, within twenty-four hours from the time the undertaking referred to in section 25-10,100 is given by the plaintiff, give notice to the sheriff that he excepts to the sufficiency of the sureties. If he fails to do so, he must be deemed to have waived all objections to them. When the defendant excepts, the sureties must justify upon notice as in the case of bail on arrest. The sheriff or other officer shall be responsible for the sufficiency of the sureties, until the objection to them is waived as above provided or until they justify. The property shall be delivered to the plaintiff when the undertaking required by section 25-1098 has been given.
