549.18 SECURITY FOR COSTS.
When an action is begun in the district court by a plaintiff who is committed for a crime,
or is a nonresident or a foreign corporation, or when such action is brought into the district
court on appeal by defendant, such plaintiff shall file a bond to the court administrator, before
service of summons, or in case of appeal within five days after perfecting the same, in the sum of
at least $75, conditioned for the payment of all costs and disbursements that may be adjudged
against the plaintiff. If, after the commencement of the action or the taking of an appeal, all
parties plaintiff therein become nonresidents, or the sureties on the bond remove from the state or
become insolvent, the court, on motion, may require such bond, or an additional bond, to be filed,
conditioned as aforesaid. This section shall not apply to any action brought for the recovery of
wages or claims for personal services.
