The DC Code: § 16-580 Quashing attachment where judgment obtained to hinder just claims.

Index16 Particular Actions, Proceedings and Matters. (Refs & Annos)

Where an attachment levied under this subchapter is based upon a judgment obtained by default or consent without a trial upon the merits, the court, upon motion of an interested person, may quash the attachment upon satisfactory proof that the judgment was obtained without just cause and solely for the purpose of preventing or delaying the satisfaction of just claims.
