1782.  (a) If the commissioner finds that any of the factors set
forth in Section 1781 is true with respect to any foreign (other
nation) bank that is licensed to maintain an office and that it is
necessary, in case the bank is licensed to transact business in this
state, for the protection of the interests of creditors of the bank's

public interest that the commissioner immediately suspend or revoke
the license of the bank, the commissioner may issue an order
suspending or revoking the license of the bank.
   (b) (1) Within 30 days after an order is issued pursuant to
subdivision (a), the foreign (other nation) bank to which the order
is issued may file with the commissioner an application for a hearing
on the order. If the commissioner fails to commence the hearing

commissioner (or within any longer period to which the bank
consents), the order shall be deemed rescinded. Within 30 days after

license to the commissioner.



1784.  (a) Any foreign (other nation) bank to which an order is
issued under Section 1781 or 1782 may apply to the commissioner to
modify or rescind such order. The commissioner shall not grant the

to do so and that it is reasonable to believe that the bank will, if
and when it is again licensed to maintain an office, comply with all
applicable provisions of this division and of any regulation or order
issued under this division.
   (b) The right of any foreign (other nation) bank to which an order
is issued under Section 1781 or 1782 to petition for judicial review
of the order shall not be affected by the failure of the bank to
apply to the commissioner pursuant to subdivision (a) to modify or

1785.  (a) If the commissioner finds that any of the factors set
forth in Section 1781 is true with respect to any foreign (other
nation) bank which is licensed to transact business in this state and
that it is necessary for the protection of the interests of the
creditors of such bank's business in this state or for the protection
of the public interest that he or she take immediate possession of
the property and business of the bank, the commissioner may by order
forthwith take possession of the property and business of the bank
and retain possession until the bank resumes business in this state
or is finally liquidated. The bank may, with the consent of the

the commissioner may prescribe.
   (b) (1) Whenever the commissioner takes possession of the property
and business of a foreign (other nation) bank pursuant to
subdivision (a), such bank may, within 10 days, apply to the superior
court in the county in which the primary office of the bank is
located to enjoin further proceedings. The court may, after citing
the commissioner to show cause why further proceedings should not be
enjoined and after a hearing, dismiss such application or enjoin the
commissioner from further proceedings and order him or her to
surrender the property and business of the bank to the bank or make
such further order as may be just.
   (2) The judgment of the court may be appealed by the commissioner
or by the bank in the manner provided by law for appeals from the
judgment of a superior court to the court of appeal. In case the
commissioner appeals the judgment of the court, such appeal shall
operate as a stay of the judgment, and the commissioner shall not be
required to post any bond.
   (c) Whenever the commissioner takes possession of the property and
business of a foreign (other nation) bank pursuant to subdivision
(a), the commissioner shall conserve or liquidate the property and
business of such bank pursuant to Articles 1 (commencing with Section
3100), 3 (commencing with Section 3160) and 6 (commencing with
Section 3220) of Chapter 17, and the provisions of such articles
(except Sections 3100, 3101, 3102, and 3126) shall apply as if the
bank were a bank organized under the laws of this state.
   (d) When the commissioner has completed the liquidation of the
property and business of a foreign (other nation) bank, the
commissioner shall transfer any remaining assets to such bank in
accordance with such orders as the court may issue. However, in case
the bank has an office in another state of the United States which is
in liquidation and the assets of such office appear to be
insufficient to pay in full the creditors of the office, the court
shall order the commissioner to transfer to the liquidator of the
office such amount of any such remaining assets as appears to be
necessary to cover such insufficiency; if there are two or more such
offices and the amount of remaining assets is less than the aggregate
amount of insufficiencies with respect to the offices, the court
shall order the commissioner to distribute the remaining assets among
the liquidators of such offices in such manner as the court finds
equitable.
