WVC 38 - 6 - 2
§38-6-2. Effect of giving, or of refusal to give, bond; return of
bond to clerk's office.
If such bond be not given within a reasonable time after
such notice, the officer may refuse to levy on such property, or
may, if he has already levied, restore it to the person from
whose possession it was taken, as the case may be. If, where
there has been no levy, the bond be given within a reasonable
time, or, after a levy, the bond be given before the property is
restored, it shall be returned within twenty days to the clerk's
office of the circuit court of the county in which such property
may be, and the claimant or purchaser of such property shall,
after such bond is so returned, be barred of any action against
the officer levying thereon, provided the security therein be
good at the time of taking it. After such bond has been given as
herein provided, the officer shall proceed to levy, if he has not
already done so, or, if the levy has been released, he shall
proceed to levy again.
