SECTION 178
Action on bond
General Business (GBS) CHAPTER 20, ARTICLE 11
§ 178. Action on bond. All claims or suits brought in any court
against any licensed person may be brought in the name of the person
damaged upon the bond deposited by such licensed person as provided in
section one hundred seventy-seven and may be transferred and assigned as
other claims for damages in civil suits. The amount of damages claimed
by plaintiff, and not the penalty named in the bond, shall determine the
jurisdiction of the court in which the action is brought. The
commissioner may institute a suit against the bond on behalf of any
person damaged. Where such licensed person has departed from the state
with intent to defraud his creditors or to avoid the service of a
summons in an action brought under this section, service shall be made
upon the surety in the manner provided for service of a summons. A copy
of such summons shall be mailed to the last known post office address of
the residence of the licensed person and the place where he conducted
such employment agency, as shown by the records of the commissioner.
