  • Attachment: A procedure by which a person's property is seized to pay judgments levied by the court.

a. Whenever an umpire acts upon an application for relief in the nature of a civil provisional remedy under any applicable law, including the civil remedies of attachment, replevin, sequestration, and other corresponding or equivalent remedies, however designated and regardless of whether the remedy is ancillary to an action or must be obtained by an independent action, the umpire shall have full authority to act thereon. Whenever any of these remedies are applied for during an alternative resolution proceeding, the umpire shall promptly rule on that application. Any determination reached before a final award shall be considered an intermediate ruling as provided for in subsection b. of section 5 of this act. Any party may apply at any time to the Superior Court or any other court of competent jurisdiction for an order enforcing the determination of the umpire directing relief in the nature of any of the provisional remedies provided for in this section. Whenever enforcement of an order is sought pursuant to this subsection, review of the validity of the order may be had by way of defense to enforcement.

b. Where reasonably required by the circumstances, a party may apply to the Superior Court or any other court of competent jurisdiction for an order granting any of the provisional remedies or other relief set forth in this section, before the umpire provided for in the agreement, or designated by the court, is authorized or able to act on the request for relief.
