other agent or bailee:

(1) took the action after it had been served with an injunction,
restraining order, or other legal process enjoining it from doing so,
issued by a court of competent jurisdiction, and had a reasonable
opportunity to act on the injunction, restraining order, or other legal
process; or

(2) acted in collusion with the wrongdoer in violating the rights of
the adverse claimant; or

(3) in the case of a security certificate that has been stolen, acted
with notice of the adverse claim.
