WVC 53-5-12 §53-5-12. Damages on dissolution; liability of sureties on forthcoming bond.
When an injunction to stay proceedings on a judgment or decree for money is dissolved, wholly or in part, there shall be decreed to the party having such judgment or decree damages, in lieu of interest, at the rate of ten percent per annum, from the time the injunction took effect until such dissolution thereof, on the amount of principal, interest, and costs due on the judgment or decree, proceedings on which are enjoined, and, if a forthcoming bond has been taken in the case, the amount on which such damages shall be paid shall be the sum due on such bond. And in all cases the court or judge dissolving the injunction shall ascertain and enter in the decree of dissolution the amount of principal, interest, damages and costs, including officer's fees and commissions due on the judgment or decree, at the date of the dissolution of the injunction, and shall award execution therefor against the defendant in the judgment or decree, proceedings on which were enjoined, or their personal representatives, with interest thereon from that day till paid, and the costs incurred by the defendant in the injunction in defending the same. And if a forthcoming bond has been given in the case, and the same has been or shall be forfeited, the sureties therein shall be liable for the costs incurred by the defendant in the injunction, as aforesaid, and, to the extent of their liability on such forthcoming bond, for whatever sum remains unpaid on the execution so awarded.
