AS 06.26.760. Department in Possession..

(a) When the department has taken possession of a trust company, it is vested with the full and exclusive power of management and control, including the power to act as a trustee for trust assets, to continue or discontinue the operation of the trust company, to stop or limit the payment of the trust company's obligations, to employ necessary assistants, to execute an instrument in the name of the trust company, to commence, defend, and conduct in the trust company's name any action or proceeding to which the trust company may be a party, to terminate the possession by restoring the trust company to its board, and to reorganize or liquidate the trust company under this chapter. As soon as practicable after taking possession, the department shall make an inventory of the trust assets and the trust company assets and file a copy of the inventory with the superior court.

(b) When the department has taken possession, the following dates are postponed until six months after the possession begins:

(1) notwithstanding other provisions of law, the date on which any period of limitation fixed by a statute or agreement would otherwise expire on a claim or right of action of the trust company; or

(2) the date on which an appeal must be taken or a pleading or other document must be filed by the trust company in any pending court action or other proceeding.

(c) A judgment, lien, or attachment may not be enforced against trust company assets while the assets are in possession of the department. Upon the election of the department in connection with a liquidation or reorganization,

(1) any lien or attachment, other than an attorney's or mechanic's lien, obtained upon a trust company asset during the department's possession or within four months before beginning that possession may be vacated, except liens created by the department while in possession; and

(2) any transfer of trust company assets made after or in contemplation of the trust company's insolvency or in anticipation of the department's takeover, with intent to effect a preference of one creditor over another creditor or to prevent the distribution of the trust company assets according to law, is void.

(d) The department may borrow money in the name of the trust company in the department's possession and may pledge trust company assets as security for the loan.

(e) All necessary and reasonable expenses resulting from the department's possession of a trust company and of its reorganization or liquidation shall be paid from trust company assets.
