Art. 9.  Same; quasi in rem; attachment

A court which is otherwise competent under the laws of this state has jurisdiction to render a money judgment against a nonresident if the action is commenced by an attachment of his property in this state.  Unless the nonresident subjects himself personally to the jurisdiction of the court, the judgment may be executed only against the property attached.
