General Laws

Section 15. If appraisers appointed under section thirteen certify that property so seized is perishable and likely to depreciate in value by being kept, any district court may order a sale by auction of such property at such time and after such notice as the order, which shall be endorsed on the inventory, shall direct; but this section shall not affect the power of the court in which the libel is pending to order a sale of the property for sufficient cause at any time during the pendency of the libel.
