2007 ORS 62.702¹
Procedure for dissolution of cooperative by court

(1) A court in a judicial proceeding brought to dissolve a cooperative may appoint one or more receivers to wind up and liquidate the business and affairs of the cooperative or one or more custodians to manage the business and affairs of the cooperative. The court shall hold a hearing, after notifying all parties to the proceeding and any interested persons designated by the court, before appointing a receiver or custodian. The court appointing a receiver or custodian has exclusive jurisdiction over the cooperative and all its property wherever located.

(2) The court may appoint an individual or a domestic or foreign corporation, authorized to transact business in this state, as a receiver or custodian. The court may require the receiver or custodian to post bond, with or without sureties, in an amount the court directs.

(3) The court shall describe the powers and duties of the receiver or custodian in its appointing order, which may be amended periodically. Among other powers:

(a) The receiver may dispose of all or any part of the assets of the cooperative wherever located, at a public or private sale, if authorized by the court and may sue and defend in the receiver’s own name as receiver of the cooperative in all courts of this state.

(b) The custodian may exercise all of the powers of the cooperative, through or in place of its board of directors or, creditors and any holders of other equity interest in the cooperative officers, to the extent necessary to manage the affairs of the cooperative in the best interests of its members, shareholders, creditors and any holders of other equity interest in the cooperative.

(4) The court during a receivership may redesignate the receiver a custodian, and during a custodianship may redesignate the custodian a receiver, if doing so is in the best interests of the cooperative, its members, shareholders, creditors and any holders of other equity interest in the cooperative.

(5) The court periodically during the receivership or custodianship may order compensation paid and expense disbursements or reimbursements made to the receiver or custodian and the receiver’s or custodian’s counsel from the assets of the cooperative or proceeds from the sale of the assets.
