SECTION 6222
Discharge of attachment
Civil Practice Law & Rules (CVP) CHAPTER 8, ARTICLE 62
§ 6222. Discharge of attachment. A defendant whose property or debt
has been levied upon may move, upon notice to the plaintiff and the
sheriff, for an order discharging the attachment as to all or a part of
the property or debt upon payment of the sheriff's fees and expenses. On
such a motion, the defendant shall give an undertaking, in an amount
equal to the value of the property or debt sought to be discharged, that
the defendant will pay to the plaintiff the amount of any judgment which
may be recovered in the action against him, not exceeding the amount of
the undertaking. Making a motion or giving an undertaking under this
section shall not of itself constitute an appearance in the action.
