Text Search

Enter the text to search for and click Search to get a list of statutes containing the text you entered. Tips:
  • Multiple words will be searched as a phrase. Entering Property Tax will return statutes that contain the complete phrase Property Tax.
  • Logical Operators are allowed. Hunting and Fishing will return statutes that containing both hunting and fishing. Hunting or Fishing will return statutes that contain hunting, fishing, or both.
  • Wild cards(*) are allowed. Entering Approp* will return statutes that contain Appropriation, Appropriate, Appropriated, etc..
  • Punctuation can also be used as operators. + = and, , = or. Searching for phrases that have , and will result in error unless you enclose the entire phrase in quotes.
The Filter option allows you to narrow your search results to a specific Title or Chapter. Here is a tip for using the filter option.
  • Use a dash (-) as the last character of your filter to refine searches. For example the filter "1-1" returns sections in 1-1, 1-10, 1-11, 1-12, etc. The filter "1-1-" returns only sections in Chapter 1-1.

     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.
