12-1564. Indemnification of officer for levy; recovery of costs

If there is a reasonable doubt about the equity interest of a judgment debtor in any property or the liability for the seizure of the property on execution, the officer may require sufficient security from the judgment creditor to indemnify the officer. If security is not provided, the officer is not liable for failing to levy on the property. If the judgment creditor deposits sufficient security to indemnify the officer taking the property, he shall recover from the judgment debtor, together with the costs of the execution, the reasonable costs of the indemnity deposited.
