§ 27-14.3-59 Claims of nonresidents against insurers domiciled in this state. (a) In a liquidation proceeding begun in this state against an insurer domiciled in this state, claimants residing in foreign countries or in states not reciprocal states must file claims in this state, and claimants residing in reciprocal states may file claims either with the ancillary receivers, if any, in their respective states, provided a claim filing procedure is established in the ancillary proceeding, or with the domiciliary liquidator. Claims must be filed on or before the last date fixed for the filing of claims in the domiciliary liquidation proceeding.
(b) Claims belonging to claimants residing in reciprocal
states may be proved either in the liquidation proceeding in this state as
provided in this chapter, or in ancillary proceedings, if any, in the
reciprocal states, provided a claim filing procedure is established in the
ancillary proceeding. If notice of the claims and opportunity to appear and be
heard is afforded the domiciliary liquidator of this state as provided in
§ 27-14.3-60(b) with respect to ancillary proceedings, the final allowance
of claims by the courts in ancillary proceedings in reciprocal states shall be
conclusive as to amount and as to priority against special deposits or other
security located in the ancillary states, but shall not be conclusive with
respect to priorities against general assets under § 27-14.3-46.
