§431:15-329 Disputed claims. (a) When a claim is denied in whole or in part by the liquidator, written notice of the determination shall be given to the claimant or the claimant's attorney by first class mail at the address shown in the proof of claim. Within sixty days from the mailing of the notice, the claimant may file any objections with the liquidator. If no such filing is made, the claimant may not further object to the determination.
(b) Whenever objections are filed with the liquidator and the liquidator does not alter the denial of the claim as a result of the objections, the liquidator shall ask the court for a hearing as soon as practicable and give notice of the hearing by first class mail to the claimant or the claimant's attorney and to any other persons directly affected, not less than ten nor more than thirty days before the date of the hearing. The matter may be heard by the court or by a court appointed referee who shall submit findings of fact along with such referee's recommendations. [L 1987, c 347, pt of §2]
Liquidation court had personal jurisdiction over former parent company of liquidated life insurer after liquidator filed a motion for an order confirming liquidator's denial of a disputed claim that the company remained the sole shareholder of the insurer following liquidator's alleged failure to validly forfeit the company's surrendered shares. The motion did not initiate a new suit but was instead a continuation of the liquidation proceeding and was properly filed with the liquidation court, whose review of the claim was provided for under the Insurers Supervision, Rehabilitation and Liquidation Act. 135 H. 49, 346 P.3d 118 (2015).
