Wrongful Attachment Law and Legal Definition
Wrongful attachment refers to wrongfully obtaining or tortiously employing an order for, or writ, of attachment, as where:
1) no ground for attachment exists,
2) where property of the defendant not liable to attachment is seized, or
3) where property of a third person is seized as that of the defendant.
It is a wrong for which a remedy exists in a suit on the attachment bond, an action for malicious attachment, an action for abuse of process, or a suit for malicious prosecution.
