2733.31 Order to deliver property enforced.

In an action in quo warranto, when judgment is rendered against the defendant, the court may make an order directing him forthwith to deliver over the books, papers, property, money, deeds, notes, bills, and obligations to the persons entitled thereto, or to the trustees appointed to receive them, and may send a transcript of the proceedings, including a copy of such order, to the court of common pleas of the proper county, with a special mandate directing such court to carry it into effect. On complaint being made to such court of common pleas, by affidavit, of a neglect or refusal to comply with such order, that court shall direct an attachment to issue for the defendant, returnable forthwith, who may be required to answer under oath touching the premises. If it appears that the defendant neglects or refuses to comply, the court shall render judgment for penalty or imprisonment, or both, such as the court making the order might have rendered.
