What is "sequestration"?

By definition,

sequestration is "a legal writ authorizing a sheriff or commissioner

to take into custody the property of a defendant who is in contempt until the orders of a court are complied with."

The word is derived from 500 year old British law and amounts to the act of taking someone's property until a debt has been paid.

Johnny Cash knew all about it whe he wrote in his famous song-BUSTED-

that the county's gonna' come and take my belongings away
cause I'm busted!
