TITLE 41
INSURANCE
CHAPTER 38
ACQUISITIONS OF CONTROL AND INSURANCE HOLDING COMPANY SYSTEMS
41-3818.  Injunctions, prohibitions against voting securities, sequestration of voting securities. (1) Whenever it appears to the director that any insurer or any director, officer, employee or agent thereof has committed or is about to commit a violation of the provisions of this chapter or of any rule or order issued by the director hereunder, the director may apply to the district court, fourth judicial district for Ada county, for an order enjoining the insurer or director, officer, employee or agent thereof from violating or continuing to violate the provisions of this chapter or any rule or order thereunder, and for such other equitable relief as the nature of the case and the interests of the insurer’s policyholders, creditors and shareholders or the public may require.
(2)  No security that is the subject of any agreement or arrangement regarding acquisition, or that is acquired or to be acquired, in contravention of the provisions of this chapter or of any rule or order issued by the director hereunder, may be voted at any shareholders’ meeting, or may be counted for quorum purposes, and any action of shareholders requiring the affirmative vote of a percentage of shares may be taken as though the securities were not issued and outstanding; however, no action taken at any such meeting shall be invalidated by the voting of such securities, unless the action would materially affect control of the insurer or unless the courts of this state so order. If an insurer or the director has reason to believe that any security of the insurer has been or is about to be acquired in contravention of the provisions of this chapter or of any rule or order issued by the director hereunder, the insurer or the director may apply to the fourth judicial district court for Ada county to enjoin any offer, request, invitation, agreement or acquisition made in contravention of section 41-3804, Idaho Code, or any rule or order issued by the director to enjoin the voting of any security so acquired, to void any vote of the security already cast at any meeting of shareholders, and for such other equitable relief as the nature of the case and the interest of the insurer’s policyholders, creditors and shareholders or the public may require.
(3)  In any case where a person has acquired or is proposing to acquire any voting securities in violation of the provisions of this chapter or any rule or order issued by the director hereunder, the fourth judicial district court for Ada county, on such notice as the court deems appropriate, upon the application of the insurer or the director, shall seize or sequester any voting securities of the insurer owned directly or indirectly by the person, and issue such order as may be appropriate to effectuate the provisions of this chapter.
(4)  Notwithstanding any other provisions of law, for the purposes of this chapter, the situs of the ownership of the securities of domestic insurers shall be deemed to be in this state.
