SECTION 7
Adjournment of term on non-appearance of judge
Judiciary (JUD) CHAPTER 30, ARTICLE 2
§ 7. Adjournment of term on non-appearance of judge. If a judge,
authorized to hold a term of a court, does not come to the place where
the term is appointed to be held, or to which it shall have been
adjourned by the judge, before four o'clock in the afternoon of the day
so appointed or of such adjourned day, the sheriff or clerk must then
open the term, and forthwith adjourn it, or again adjourn it, as the
case may be, to nine o'clock in the morning of the next day. If the
judge attends by four o'clock in the afternoon of the second day of the
term as appointed or as adjourned by such judge, he must open the term;
otherwise the sheriff or the clerk must adjourn it without day. If,
before four o'clock of the second day of the term as appointed or as
adjourned by the judge, the sheriff or the clerk receives from a judge,
authorized to hold the term, a written direction to adjourn the term to
a future day certain, he must adjourn it accordingly, instead of
adjourning it as above prescribed. The direction must be entered in the
minutes as an order.
