Title 9, Chapter 2, Section 5
(a) No plaintiff may prosecute two actions in the courts at the same
time for the same cause of action and against the same party. If two
such actions are commenced simultaneously, the defendant may require
the plaintiff to elect which he will prosecute. If two such actions
are commenced at different times, the pendency of the former shall
be a good defense to the latter.
(b) The rule requiring a plaintiff to elect shall not apply to a
prior attachment against property where the defendant is
subsequently served personally nor to an attachment obtained during
the pendency of an action. However, the judgment in the case against
the person shall set out the fact of its identity with the
proceedings against the property.
