Rehabilitation, Liquidation and Conservation of Insurers

ORS 734.350
Voidable transfers


Any transfer of, or lien upon, the property of an insurer, other than as provided in ORS 734.320 (Attachment and garnishment of assets) which is made or created within four months prior to the commencement of a delinquency proceeding with the intent of giving to any creditor, or of enabling the creditor to obtain, a greater percentage of the debt than any other creditor of the same class, and which is accepted by such creditor having reasonable cause to believe that such a preference will occur, shall be voidable.


Every director, officer, employee, stockholder, member, subscriber, and any other person acting on behalf of such insurer who shall be concerned in any such act or deed and every person receiving thereby any property of such insurer or the benefit thereof, shall be personally liable therefor and shall be bound to account to the Director of the Department of Consumer and Business Services.


The director, as receiver in any proceeding under this chapter, may avoid any transfer of, or lien upon, the property of an insurer which any creditor, stockholder, subscriber or member of such insurer might have avoided, and may recover the property so transferred, unless such person was a bona fide holder for value prior to the commencement of the delinquency proceeding. Such property or its value may be recovered from anyone who has received it, except a bona fide holder for value as specified in this subsection. [1967 c.359 §289]
