2 Twenty days' notice must be given, and served in the same manner as a summons in an action in the Supreme Court. N. Y. Code Civ. Pro., 8 1376. Hence notice should not be given by an order to show cause which, by the rules of practice, must be returnable

in less than eight days. Application should be made to the court. See next note.

which judgment was rendered, “ upon giving twenty days' notice to the occupants of the lands so recovered, and to the grantees or devisees of said deceased, or if he died intestate, to the heirs at law of said deceased; said notices to be served in the same man ner as a summons is directed to be served in an action in the Supreme Court.” Although this section ($ 1376) does not expressly require the application to be made to the court instead of a judge, yet by section 1377 of the Code it is evident that it should be made to the court.

4 A petition will not, it seems, sufice. Matter of Holmes, 59 Hun, 369, 13 N. Y. Supp. 100.

5 X. Y. Code Civ. Pro., &$ 1377. 1378. The five years are computed from the time of docketing (Kupfur l'. Frank, 30 Hun, 74), and include the day of docketing. Aultman, etc., Co. r. Taylor, 163 N. Y. 54. And by Code Civ. Pro., $ 1382. a stay is not counted as a part of the time limited for issuing an execution, or for making an application for leave to issue an execution from a court of record.

In Mereness r. Brenon, 7 Wkly. Dig. 24, it was held that leave to issue execution (for the first time) after

five years may be granted upon motion of the personal representative of a deceased judgment creditor. Or. bp the representative of a deceased joint plaintiff uniting with the surviving plaintiff. Matter of Armstrong, 35 Misc. 327, 71 V. Y. Supp. 951.

If execution has been issued and returned wholly or partly unsatisfied or unexecuted within the five years, no leare of court is necessary to issue it again. Cooper 1. Bailey. 69 App. Div, 358, 74 N. Y. Supp. 667: Imp. Bank 1. Quackenbush, 80 Hun, Ill, 30 N. Y. Supp. 35; rer'd. on another point, 143 V. Y. 567. And even if issued (for the first time) after the said five years without leave. the execution is not void, but voidable only in the discretion of the court. See Aultman, etc., Co. v. Syme. 56 App. Div. 165, 67 Y. Y. Supp. 530; id., 163 N. Y. 54; Bank of Genesee r. Spencer. 18 N. Y. 150; Wooster 1. Wuterich, 2 Abb. X. C. 206.

6 The Code does not expressly require the affidarit to be made by a party to the judgment-record. An assignee of the judgment may make the affidavit. See Duell t. Alvord, 41 Hun, 196, 198.
