If an action is brought against any officer or person for an act for the doing of
which he had theretofore received any valid bond or covenant of indemnity, and he
gives seasonable notice thereof in writing to the persons who executed such bond or
covenant, and permits them to conduct the defense of such action, the judgment recovered
therein is conclusive evidence against the persons so notified; and the court may,
on motion of the defendant, upon notice of five days, and upon proof of such bond
or covenant, and of such notice and permission, enter judgment against them for the
amount so recovered and costs.
