Receivership

SECTION 19-12-1


§ 19-12-1 Application for receivership.

The director, or the director's designee, is empowered immediately to take possession of any financial institution or credit union and its assets if, upon examination, any financial institution or credit union, which has or has not invoked the conservatorship provisions or the voluntary liquidation provisions of this title, appears to be insolvent by reason of:

(1) The financial institution's or credit union's financial condition is such that the sum of the financial institution's or credit union's debts are greater than all of the financial institution's or credit union's property at a fair valuation, exclusive of property transferred, concealed, or removed with intent to hinder, delay or defraud the financial institution's or credit union's creditors or because it is generally not paying or is unable to pay its debts as they become due; or

(2) The financial institution's or credit union's condition is such as to render the continuance of its business hazardous to the public or to those having funds in its custody; or

(3) The financial institution or credit union has failed to maintain adequate deposit insurance as required by this title; or

(4) The financial institution or credit union has failed to remedy unsafe or unsound practices in violation of a cease and desist order.

The director may apply to the superior court for the appointment of the director or one of the director's deputies, or both, or in the case when a financial institution's or credit union's deposits are insured by the federal deposit insurance corporation, the national credit union administration or any other agency or instrumentality of the United States, which insures the deposits of the financial institution or credit union, as a receiver or receivers of the financial institution or credit union, and for an injunction to restrain the financial institution or credit union, in whole or in part, from further proceeding with its business, and the court shall have jurisdiction in equity of the application.
