Sec. § 1314
Attaching Creditor’s Rights in Personal Property

Where the claiming authority has delivered an order of attachment to a claiming agent, the claiming authority’s rights in a debt owed to a defendant or in an interest of a defendant in personal property against which debt or property a judgment may be enforced, are superior to the extent of the amount of the attachment to the rights of any transferee of the debt or property, except:


A transferee who acquired the debt or property before it was levied upon for fair consideration and without knowledge of the order of attachment; or


A transferee who acquired the debt or property for fair consideration after it was levied upon without knowledge of the levy while it was not in the possession of the claiming agent.
