The DC Code: § 16-524 Judgment generally; condemnation of attached property.

Index16 Particular Actions, Proceedings and Matters. (Refs & Annos)
If the defendant in the action has been served with process, final judgment may not be rendered against the garnishee until the action against the defendant is determined.
If in such an action judgment is rendered for the defendant, the garnishee shall be discharged and shall recover his costs, and the property attached or its proceeds shall be restored to the garnishee or to the defendant, as the case may require.
If in such an action judgment is rendered in favor of the plaintiff against the defendant, and it appears that the plaintiff is entitled to a judgment of condemnation of the property attached, the court shall proceed to enter such judgment in the attachment as is directed by sections 16-525 to 16-527.
