Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Forfeiture of recognizance bond. Changes outdated wording to current practice. Under the existing statute a judge is required to enter the default on "the page of his docket whereon the case is docketed." In practice, dockets are maintained on the automated case management system and district courts no longer maintain hard copy dockets. The bill requires the default to be entered on "case papers." This bill was recommended by the Committee on District Courts.
