Indemnity to Sheriff Bond
Indemnity to Sheriff Bond: The sheriff
is traditionally the officer of the court who serves any writ seizing or taking
possession of property. The plaintiff customarily provides the sheriff with
instructions on what property to seize. In several states, the sheriff is entitled
to demand a bond to indemnify him or her should the defendant seek damages against
the sheriff for seizing the wrong property or for other actions taken pursuant
to an invalid writ.
