Sequestration a term employed to signify the separating or setting aside of a thing in controversy from the possession of both parties who contend for it. It is twofold — voluntary and necessary. Voluntary sequestration is that which is done by consent of each party; necessary is that which the judge, of his own authority, does, whether the party consents or not. Sequestration is also a kind of execution for debt on a benefice, issued by the bishop, by which the profits are to be paid to the creditor.
