WVC 5B-1A-8

§5B-1A-8. Limitation on liability of owner from whom state

acquires land or interest therein.

During the interim period when an abandoned railroad

right-of-way is held by the state for possible future railroad use,

the owner of the railroad right-of-way from whom the state acquired

the land or an interest therein is relieved from civil liability

for any personal injury or property damage occurring on the

right-of-way during such interim period, which might otherwise

arise from ownership.
