§ 27-1-15. Collection and distribution of assets by receiver Reinsurance.
The receiver may take evidence and property into his or her possession and shall collect the debts, dispose of the property, and pay out of the proceeds of the disposition, if the proceeds are sufficient, all of the debts of the corporation, first reserving to himself or herself a reasonable compensation that shall be allowed by the court for his or her services; provided, the receiver may reinsure, upon the written consent of the insurance commissioner and the attorney general, all the policy obligations of the corporation in any solvent corporation authorized to do business in this state, if the assets of the corporation of which he or she is a receiver are sufficient to effect the reinsurance. If the assets are insufficient for that purpose, the receiver, upon the written consent of the insurance commissioner and the attorney general, may reinsure a percentage of each policy obligation of the corporation outstanding to the extent that its assets may be sufficient for that purpose. No contract of reinsurance shall be entered into by the receiver except in pursuance of an order of the court in which the receiver was appointed directing the reinsurance and establishing the general form of the contract for the reinsurance.
