pluries writs

Multiple or successive writs of attachment or execution issued in the same action or upon the same judgment. 6 Am J2d Attach § 278; 30 Am J2d Exec § 84. At common law, a writ of execution issued after the second or alias writ was a pluries writ. Bigelow v Renker, 25 Ohio St 542. So was a writ of attachment issued after an alias writ had been returned "nothing found." See 3 Bl Comm 283.
