17:13-118. Continuation of business by commissioner; authority and powers
Upon taking possession of the property and business of a credit union, the commissioner may, pending the return of its property and business to the management of its board or the order or judgment of the Superior Court in an action instituted under sections 37 and 38 of this act or its dissolution as herein provided, continue the operation of the business of the credit union. For that purpose, the commissioner shall have and may exercise every authority and power theretofore conferred by law, by the provisions of its certificate of incorporation and by its bylaws upon its board and committees and upon all and any of its officers, directors and committee members. However, this section shall not be construed to deprive any credit union at any time of title to its property, and all transfers and conveyances of property to the credit union during the commissioner's possession thereof shall be made in its name and all transfers and conveyances of property from the credit union shall be made in the name of the credit union, under its seal or otherwise as the circumstances may require, by the commissioner. Any act or thing done by the credit union, during the commissioner's possession as aforesaid, over the signature of or by order of the commissioner shall be construed to be the act of the credit union and shall be valid and effectual in law if the statutes of this State, the certificate of incorporation of the credit union or its bylaws shall have authorized its board, committees, any director thereof, any committee member thereof or any officer thereof to do or perform any act. The commissioner shall not be obligated to carry on the business of the credit union in possession unless he deems it proper and expedient so to do but may, during his possession thereof, conserve its assets until a time as he shall determine it expedient and proper to continue the business or until otherwise directed by the Superior Court in an action instituted pursuant to sections 39 and 40 of this act or until its dissolution.
