26-2728. Appointment of trustee — Liquidation of the Bidco — Procedure. (1) If the director finds that any of the factors set forth in section 26-2727, Idaho Code, are true with respect to a licensee and that it is necessary for the protection of the interests of the licensee or for the protection of the public interest that the director take immediate possession of the property and business of the licensee, the director may appoint a conservator for the licensee. The director may appoint as conservator one (1) of the employees of the department or some other competent and disinterested person. The department shall be reimbursed out of the assets of the conservatorship for all sums expended by the department in connection with the conservatorship as expenses. Upon the approval of the director, the expenses of the conservatorship shall be paid out of the assets of the licensee. The expenses shall be a first charge upon the assets and shall be fully paid before any final distribution is made.
(2) Under the direction of the director, the conservator shall take possession of the books, records, and assets of the licensee and shall take such action with respect to employees, agents, or representatives of the licensee or any other action as may be necessary to conserve the assets of the licensee or ensure payment of obligations of the licensee pending further disposition of its business as provided by law. At any appropriate time, the director may terminate the conservatorship and permit the licensee to resume the transaction of its business subject to the terms, conditions, restrictions and limitations the director may prescribe.
(3) If in the opinion of the director it is appropriate that the licensee be liquidated, the director may apply to the district court for the county in which the principal office of the licensee is located for the appointment of a receiver for the licensee, if the director determines that any of the following are true:
(a) The licensee is insolvent.
(b) The licensee has suspended payment of its obligations, has made an assignment for the benefit of its creditors, or has admitted in writing its inability to pay its debts as they become due.
(c) The licensee has applied for an adjudication of bankruptcy, reorganization, arrangement, or other relief under a bankruptcy, reorganization, insolvency, or moratorium law.
(d) A person has applied for the relief described under paragraph (c) against any licensee and that licensee has by an affirmative act approved of or consented to the action or the relief has been granted.
(e) The licensee is in a condition that makes it unsafe or unsound for the licensee to transact business.
(4) If a receiver is appointed under subsection (3) of this section, the receiver shall liquidate the property and business of the licensee in the manner provided for in chapter 10, title 26, Idaho Code, as if the licensee were a bank.
