26-1008. Powers of director on closing bank. Upon taking the assets and business of any bank into his possession, the director is authorized to collect all moneys due to such bank, assess the stock of such bank, and to do such other acts as are necessary to conserve its assets and business, and he shall proceed to liquidate the affairs thereof. He shall have general and inclusive power and authority, except as otherwise limited by the terms of this act, to do any and all acts, to take any and all steps necessary, or, in his discretion, desirable for the protection of the property and assets of such bank and the speedy and economical liquidation of the assets and affairs of such bank and the payment of its creditors, or for the reopening and resumption of business by said bank, where that is in his discretion practicable or desirable.
The director may institute, in his own name as director, or in the name of the bank, such suits and actions and other legal proceedings as he deems expedient for such purposes, and by making application to the district court of the county in which such bank is located, or to the judge thereof, in chambers, may procure an order to sell, compromise or compound any bad or doubtful debt or claim, and to sell and dispose of any or all the assets, which sale may be made to stockholders, officers, directors, or others interested in such bank, on consent of the court. Any such application or petition by the director may be had at any time, either in term or vacation in court, or in chambers, as the court may order.
