AN ACT in relation to the Action of Replevin.

WHEREAS, It often happens that the benefit of the action of replevin is lost by the necessity of a formal demand before suit brought, whereby the property is eloigned before process can be served on the defendant, therefore for the remedy thereof.

SECTION. 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Delaware in General Assembly met: That in all actions of replevin now pending or hereafter to be brought, no proof of demand shall be necessary, but the bringing of the suit shall be considered a sufficient demand for all purposes, and the failure at the trial to prove any demand shall not be a cause for non-suit, nor shall such failure inure in anywise whatsoever to the benefit or advantage of the defendant or defendants in the suit.

Passed at Dover, April 21, 1887.
