§1-1408.  Court proceedings

A.  A dissolved corporation that has published a notice under R.S. 12:1-1407 may file an application with the district court of the parish where the dissolved corporation's principal office or, if none in this state, its registered office is located for a determination of the amount and form of security to be provided for payment of claims that are contingent or have not been made known to the dissolved corporation or that are based on an event occurring after the effective date of dissolution but that, based on the facts known to the dissolved corporation, are reasonably estimated to arise after the effective date of dissolution.  Provision need not be made for any claim that is or is reasonably anticipated to be barred under R.S. 12:1-1407(C).

B.  Within ten days after the filing of the application, notice of the proceeding shall be given by the dissolved corporation to each claimant holding a contingent claim whose contingent claim is shown on the records of the dissolved corporation.

C.  The court shall appoint an attorney at law to represent all claimants whose identities or whereabouts are unknown in any proceeding brought under this Section, as if those claimants were absentee defendants under Code of Civil Procedure Article 5091.  The reasonable fees and expenses of the appointed attorney, including all reasonable expert witness fees, shall be paid by the dissolved corporation.

D.  Provision by the dissolved corporation for security in the amount and the form ordered by the court under Subsection A of this Section shall satisfy the dissolved corporation's obligations with respect to claims that are contingent, have not been made known to the dissolved corporation, or are based on an event occurring after the effective date of dissolution, and such claims may not be enforced against a shareholder who received assets in liquidation.
