(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 the bank pursuant to Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 550) and Chapter 7 (commencing with Section 600) of Division 1, and the provisions of those chapters shall apply, except Sections 592, 593, and 690, 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.
