ORS 466.107¹
Action under ORS 466.105 against guarantor

(1) If a permittee is in bankruptcy, reorganization, or arrangement under the Federal Bankruptcy Code or if, with reasonable diligence, jurisdiction in any state court or any federal court cannot be obtained over a permittee likely to be solvent at the time of judgment, any claim arising from conduct for which evidence of financial responsibility is required under ORS 466.105 (Duties of permittee) (5) and (9) may be asserted directly against the guarantor providing the evidence of financial responsibility. In an action under this section, the guarantor shall be entitled to all rights and defenses that would have been available to the permittee if the action had been brought against the permittee and that would have been available to the guarantor if the action had been brought against the guarantor by the permittee.

(2) The total liability of any guarantor shall be limited to the aggregate amount the guarantor has provided as evidence of financial responsibility to the permittee under ORS 466.105 (Duties of permittee) (5) or (9). Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit any other state or federal statutory, constructual or common law liability of a guarantor to a permittee including, but not limited to, the liability of a guarantor for bad faith either in negotiating or in failing to negotiate the settlement of any claim.

(3) As used in this section, "guarantor" means any person other than the permittee, who provides evidence of financial responsibility for a permittee under ORS 466.105 (Duties of permittee) (5) or (9). [1987 c.540 §3]
