(Cite as: 8 V.S.A. § 7094)
  • § 7094. Ancillary formal proceedings

    (a) If a domiciliary liquidator has been appointed for an insurer not domiciled in this State, the Commissioner may file a petition with the Superior Court of Washington County requesting appointment as ancillary receiver in this State if the Commissioner finds that:

    (1) there are sufficient assets of the insurer located in this State to justify the appointment of an ancillary receiver; or

    (2) the protection of creditors or policyholders in this State so requires.

    (b) The court may issue an order appointing an ancillary receiver in whatever terms it shall deem appropriate. The filing or recording of the order with the Superior Court of Washington County or the town clerk of the town in which its principal office or place of business is located; or, in the case of real estate, with the town clerk of the town where the property is located, shall impart the same notice as a deed, bill of sale, or other evidence of title duly filed or recorded with that town clerk would have imparted.

    (c) When a domiciliary liquidator has been appointed in a reciprocal state, then the ancillary receiver appointed in this State may, whenever necessary, aid and assist the domiciliary liquidator in recovering assets of the insurer located in this State. The ancillary receivers shall, as soon as practicable, liquidate from their respective securities those special deposit claims and secured claims that are proved and allowed in the ancillary proceedings in this State, and shall pay the necessary expenses of the proceedings. The ancillary receiver shall promptly transfer all remaining assets, books, accounts, and records to the domiciliary liquidator. Subject to this section, the ancillary receiver and his or her deputies shall have the same powers and be subject to the same duties with respect to the administration of assets as a liquidator of an insurer domiciled in this State.

    (d) When a domiciliary liquidator has been appointed in this State, ancillary receivers appointed in reciprocal states shall have, as to assets and books, accounts, and other records in their respective states, corresponding rights, duties, and powers to those provided in subsection (c) of this section for ancillary receivers appointed in this State.
