                            CHAPTER 226-H.F.No. 2288 
                  An act relating to courts; modifying conciliation 
                  court debtor disclosures; amending Minnesota Statutes 
                  2002, section 491A.02, subdivision 9. 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 2002, section 491A.02, 
        subdivision 9, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 9.  [JUDGMENT DEBTOR DISCLOSURE.] Notwithstanding any 
        contrary provision in rule 518 of the Conciliation Court Rules, 
        unless the parties have otherwise agreed, if a conciliation 
        court judgment or a judgment of district court on removal from 
        conciliation court has been docketed in district court for at 
        least 30 days, and the judgment is not satisfied, the district 
        court in the county in which the judgment originated shall, upon 
        request of the judgment creditor, order the judgment debtor to 
        mail to the judgment creditor information as to the nature, 
        amount, identity, and locations of all the debtor's assets, 
        liabilities, and personal earning.  The information must be 
        provided on a form prescribed by the Supreme Court, and the 
        information shall be sufficiently detailed to enable the 
        judgment creditor to obtain satisfaction of the judgment by way 
        of execution on nonexempt assets and earnings of the judgment 
        debtor.  The order must contain a notice that failure to 
        complete the form and mail it to the judgment creditor within 
        ten days after service of the order may result in a citation for 
        civil contempt of court.  Cash bail posted as a result of being 
        cited for civil contempt of court order under this section may 
        be ordered payable to the creditor to satisfy the judgment, 
        either partially or fully. 
           Presented to the governor May 15, 2004 
           Signed by the governor May 19, 2004, 11:20 a.m.
