2014 Statute


41-806.Action by injunction to abate nuisance; procedure; fees of prosecuting attorneys; closing and padlocking; bond of owner, lessee or occupant. The attorney for the director when ordered by the director, or county attorney in the county in which such nuisance exists, or is kept or maintained, may maintain an action by injunction, in the name of the state of Kansas, to abate and temporarily or permanently to enjoin such nuisance. The court shall have the right to make temporary and final orders as in other injunction proceedings. The plaintiff shall not be required to give bond in such action.

Upon final judgment against the defendant, such court shall allow the attorneys for the state of Kansas a reasonable fee for prosecuting the action which shall be taxed as costs and shall also order that such room, house, building, structure, boat or place of any kind shall be closed and padlocked for a period of not less than three (3) months nor more than two (2) years, and until the owner, lessee, tenant or occupant thereof shall give bond with sufficient surety to be approved by the court making the order, in the penal sum of not less than one thousand dollars ($1,000), payable to the state of Kansas, and conditioned that no alcoholic liquor will for a period of two years thereafter be manufactured, possessed, sold, bartered or given away or furnished or otherwise disposed of thereon or therein, or kept thereon or therein with intent to sell, barter, give away, or otherwise dispose of the same, contrary to this act, and that he and his surety will pay all fines and costs assessed against him for any violation of this act.

If any condition of such bond be violated, the whole amount may be recovered as a penalty for the use of the state of Kansas; and, in such suit on the bond, both principal and surety may be joined as party defendants, and satisfaction may be had from either of them. In such action a notice to nonresident defendants may be given by publication as authorized by law under the code of civil procedure, or upon their agents for service in this state, if any.
