(a) Any clerk of any court who fails to deliver to the commissioner any abstract of any cause within his court, on application of the commissioner to the superior court for the judicial district wherein such clerk resides, or to any judge of the Superior Court when the same is not then sitting in such judicial district, showing such failure, may be required by such court or such judge to deliver the same within such time as is designated by such court or judge. On receipt of such application, the court or judge shall designate a time and place of hearing thereon and shall cite such clerk to appear at such time and place to show cause why he has failed to deliver such abstract to the commissioner.

Any clerk who fails to comply with any order issued by the authority of the provisions of this section shall be in contempt and the court or judge issuing the same may punish therefor as in mandamus proceedings. Any person claiming to be aggrieved by any order issued on such application shall have the same right to review by the Supreme Court as in the case of mandamus proceedings. (1626)
