WVC 38 - 6 - 1
§38-6-1. Bond to indemnify officer making levy.
If any officer levy or is required to levy an execution or a
warrant of distress on property, and a doubt shall arise whether
such property is liable to such levy, he may give to the
plaintiff, his agent, or attorney at law, notice that an
indemnifying bond is required in the case. Bond may thereupon be
given by any person, with good security, payable to the officer,
in a penalty equal to double the value of the property,
conditioned to indemnify him against all damages which he may
sustain in consequence of the seizure or sale of such property,
and to pay to any claimant of such property all damages which he
may sustain in consequence of such seizure or sale.
