ORS 65.667¹
Receivership or custodianship

(1) A court, at the Attorney General’s request or in a judicial proceeding brought to dissolve a public benefit corporation or mutual benefit corporation, may appoint one or more receivers or custodians to manage the affairs of the corporation or to wind up and liquidate the corporation. 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 corporation and all of the corporation’s property wherever located.

(2) The court may appoint as a receiver or custodian an individual, a domestic business corporation or foreign business corporation authorized to transact business in this state or a nonprofit corporation. 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 the court’s appointing order, which may be amended periodically. Among other powers:

(a) The receiver:

(A) May dispose of all or any part of the assets of the corporation wherever located, at a public or private sale, if authorized by the court, provided, however, that the receiver’s power to dispose of the assets of the corporation is subject to any trust and other restrictions that would be applicable to the corporation; and

(B) May sue and defend in the receiver’s own name as receiver of the corporation in all courts of this state.

(b) The custodian may exercise all of the powers of the corporation, through or in place of the corporation’s board of directors or officers, to the extent necessary to manage the affairs of the corporation in the best interests of the corporation and the corporation’s members and creditors.

(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 interest of the corporation and the corporation’s members and creditors.

(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 attorney from the assets of the corporation or proceeds from the sale of the assets.

(6) If applicable under ORS 37.040 (Applicability), the Oregon Receivership Code controls over conflicting provisions of this section. [1989 c.1010 §144; 2017 c.358 §47; 2019 c.174 §97]
