SEC. 81-9-17. Receiver to be appointed.
At the end of ninety days, if the state comptroller has not sold the assets of the bank as provided in section 81-9-11 above, the state comptroller shall file a petition in the proper chancery court in a cause to be entitled "In the matter of the receivership of (name of bank)." Such petition shall recite the taking of the bank into custody under the provisions of this chapter, the failure to sell the assets as provided in section 81-9-11 above, and shall pray for the appointment of a receiver. The chancellor shall enter an order upon such petition, appointing a receiver of his own selection who shall not have been an officer, director or employee of the bank for a period of five years prior to the closing thereof. However, upon petition signed by the owners and holders of a majority in amount of the deposit liability of the bank, the chancellor may appoint such an officer, director or employee as receiver.
