Title 44, Chapter 6, Section 90 (44-6-90)

(a) The judge of the superior court shall have jurisdiction to hear any case that:

(1) Involves a tenant for life in real property or the proceeds of real property;

(2) Involves a contingent remainder interest of a class subject to open through the subsequent event of a birth or an adoption; and

(3) Does not involve the creation of a perpetuity.

(b) In such cases, the judge may receive evidence on the likelihood of the expansion of the class of such remaindermen through the subsequent event of the birth or the adoption of another member of such class. The judge shall be authorized to make such findings of fact and law as to declare such class to be closed. Upon such findings, the judge shall require the life tenant to give bond in an amount sufficient to protect against any actual subsequent expansion of such class by the life tenant through birth or adoption. An order of the judge in such case shall contain a determination of the free marketability of any concerned property.

(c) An action on the bond provided for in subsection (b) of this Code section shall be the sole recourse of any person who is interested in the remainder.
