PUBLIC UTILITY REGULATION
DUTIES OF PUBLIC UTILITIES
61-329. Unlawful transfer or acquisition — Escheat. Any such property or interest in property hereafter transferred or acquired in violation of this act shall escheat to the state of Idaho. The attorney general of the state shall institute proceedings in the district court of any county in which such property, or any portion thereof, is situated, to have such escheat adjudged and decreed. If the property is operating property, the court shall continue the operation thereof under a receiver appointed by and under the control and supervision of the court, pending final determination of the action and the sale and disposition of the property. When the court has entered judgment escheating the property to the state, the court shall thereupon order a sale of the property, or interest therein, in the same manner as prescribed by the laws of the state of Idaho for the sale of real estate under mortgage foreclosure. Out of the proceeds arising from such sale, any valid liens or claims of third parties shall be paid, and the balance shall be paid into the state treasury for the credit of the school fund.
