1809.010: Act concerning Executions.

Published: 1809

Full Title: An act concerning executions, and for other purposes.

Author: Virginia. General Assembly.

Place Issued: Richmond

Issuing Press: Samuel Pleasants

Description: Unrecorded


Deliberation over suspending debt executions for the duration of the 1807 Embargo led to the passage of this law, which allowed for suspending, deferring, and postponing such executions in a wide variety of circumstances; Swem reported this item with the erroneous title "Act suspending Executions;" title here from act itself (Chap. V of Acts of December 1808 Assembly). No copy known extant; Pleasants was ordered to print 1000 copies of the law on January 31, 1809, for the use of members of the Assembly, apparently for distribution in their districts.
