ORS 441.293
Liability to trustee for goods and services after notice

  • effect of nonpayment


A person who is served with notice of an order of the court appointing a trustee, with the trustee’s name and address, shall be liable to pay the trustee for any goods or services provided by the trustee after the date of the order if the person would have been liable for the goods or services as supplied by the licensee. The trustee shall give a receipt for each payment and shall keep a copy of each receipt on file. The trustee shall deposit amounts received in a special account and may use this or any other similar account for disbursements.


The trustee may bring an action to enforce the liability created by subsection (1) of this section. Proof of payment to the trustee is as effective in favor of the person making the payment as payment of the amount to the person who would have been entitled to receive the sum so paid.


A patient shall not be discharged, nor shall any contract or rights be forfeited or impaired, nor shall forfeiture or liability be increased, by reason of an omission to pay a licensee a sum paid to the trustee. [1981 c.868 §5; 2009 c.539 §4]
§§ 441.277 to 441.323
