(from Ch. 110, par. 12-107)
Incarceration of judgment debtor.
No order shall be entered
for the incarceration of a judgment debtor as a means of satisfying a money judgment
except when the judgment is entered for a tort committed
by such judgment debtor, and it appears from a special finding of the
jury, or from a special finding by the court, if the case is tried by
the court without a jury, that malice is the gist of the action, and
except when the judgment debtor refuses to deliver up his or her estate for the
benefit of his or her creditors.
