2715.43 Objection to surety - additional security.

(A) In any case in which a motion for attachment is filed, the defendant against whom the motion is filed may object to the surety of the plaintiff that filed the motion on the bond filed under section 2715.044 of the Revised Code, and the plaintiff may object to the surety of the defendant or another person on a bond filed under section 2715.26 or 2715.10 of the Revised Code, respectively. An objection against a surety under this division shall be made by filing with the court within ten days after the filing of the surety's bond an exception to the sufficiency of the surety. All objections to sureties are otherwise waived. When an exception to a surety is made, that surety shall show to the court that it is sufficient to fulfill the obligations of its bond. After an exception has been made, the levying officer may execute the order of attachment in accordance with section 2715.09 of the Revised Code, but shall not take any further action until the surety is found by the court to be sufficient or is replaced by sufficient surety.

(B) Before judgment, after reasonable notice to the plaintiff in an action in attachment, the defendant may move the court for additional security on his part. On such motion, if the court is satisfied that the surety in the plaintiff's bond has removed from the state or is not sufficient for its amount, it may vacate the order of attachment and direct restitution of property taken under it, unless, in a reasonable time, to be fixed by the court, the plaintiff gives sufficient security.
