2845.  A surety may require the creditor, subject to Section 996.440
of the Code of Civil Procedure, to proceed against the principal, or
to pursue any other remedy in the creditor's power which the surety
cannot pursue, and which would lighten the surety's burden; and if
the creditor neglects to do so, the surety is exonerated to the
extent to which the surety is thereby prejudiced.
