Adverse claim to deposit
  • notice
  • restraining order or other process
  • indemnity bond or letter of credit

(1) A credit union shall be obligated to recognize an adverse claim to a deposit it holds only if the adverse claimant gives notice to the credit union of its claim and:

(a) Procures a restraining order, injunction or other appropriate process against the credit union in an action wherein the person to whose credit the deposit stands is made a party and served with summons; or

(b) Delivers to the credit union in a form, and with sureties acceptable to the credit union, a bond or an irrevocable letter of credit issued by a financial institution, as defined in ORS 706.008 (Additional definitions for Bank Act), indemnifying the credit union from any liability, damage or expenses on account of the payment of the adverse claim or the dishonor of the check or other order of the person to whose credit the deposit stands.

(2) This section does not apply when the person in whose name the account is carried is a fiduciary for the adverse claimant, and the affidavit of the adverse claimant states the facts constituting the fiduciary relationship and the facts showing reasonable cause of belief on the part of the claimant that the fiduciary is about to misappropriate the deposit.

(3) A credit union may, at its option, interplead a deposit that is subject to any adverse claim. [1999 c.185 §22]
