ORS 59.790¹
Insolvent broker-dealer receiving securities from customer

No broker-dealer engaged in the business of purchasing and selling stocks or bonds as a broker-dealer, knowing that the broker-dealer is insolvent, shall accept or receive from a customer ignorant of the insolvency, money, stocks or bonds belonging to the customer, except in liquidation or as security for an existing indebtedness, and thereby cause the customer to lose in whole or in part such money, stocks or bonds. A broker-dealer shall be deemed insolvent within the meaning of this section whenever the aggregate of the property of the broker-dealer is not, at a fair valuation, sufficient in amount to pay the debts of the broker-dealer. [Amended by 1987 c.158 §12]
