21-18-28. Disclosure of liability when state is garnishee. In all cases in which the State of South Dakota is made garnishee defendant, it is not necessary for the state to file a formal disclosure, but it is a sufficient disclosure for the state auditor to notify the plaintiff or the plaintiff's attorney stating what amount, if any, is due to the principal defendant at the time of the service of summons in garnishment upon the state auditor. It is the duty of the state auditor to notify the plaintiff or the plaintiff's attorney within the time for making a return in garnishment and the state auditor shall mail a copy of the notice to the clerk of courts of the county in which the action was pending. No taking of issue is permitted on any return or disclosure made by the state auditor.
