WVC 46 - 7 - 602
§46-7-602. Judicial process against goods covered by negotiable
document of title.
Unless a document of title was originally issued upon delivery
of the goods by a person that did not have power to dispose of
them, a lien does not attach by virtue of any judicial process to
goods in the possession of a bailee for which a negotiable document
of title is outstanding unless possession or control of the
document is first surrendered to the bailee or the document's
negotiation is enjoined. The bailee may not be compelled to
deliver the goods pursuant to process until possession or control
of the document is surrendered to the bailee or to the court. A
purchaser of the document for value without notice of the process
or injunction takes free of the lien imposed by judicial process.
