§63-1-5. Notice, recognizance, or process given, taken, or issued before code in force; nothing in code to operate to discontinue any pending case.
Although a notice, recognizance, or process shall have been given, taken, or issued before the day on which this code takes effect, it may, nevertheless, be given, taken or returnable to a day after such date, in like manner as if this code had been in effect before the same was given, taken, or issued. And nothing in this code shall operate to discontinue any cause or matter, civil or criminal, which shall be depending and undetermined in any court on the day before this code takes effect; but every such cause and matter shall be proceeded in, tried and determined in such court.
