Ins. Code Section 443.052
Commencement of Formal Delinquency Proceeding
(a)Except as authorized by Section 203(e)(3), Pub. L. No. 111-203, any formal delinquency proceeding against a person shall be commenced by filing a petition in the name of the commissioner or department.
(b)The petition must state the grounds upon which the proceeding is based and the relief requested and may include a prayer for restraining orders and injunctive relief as described in Section 443.008. On the filing of the petition or order, a copy shall be forwarded by first class mail or electronic communication as permitted by the receivership court to the insurance regulatory officials and guaranty associations in states in which the insurer did business.
(c)Any petition that prays for injunctive relief must be verified by the commissioner or the commissioner’s designee, but need not plead or prove irreparable harm or inadequate remedy at law. The commissioner shall provide only the notice as the receivership court may require.
(d)If any temporary restraining order is prayed for:
(1)the receivership court may issue an initial order containing the relief requested;
(2)the receivership court shall set a time and date for the return of summons, not later than 10 days after the time and date of the issuance of the initial order, at which time the person proceeded against may appear before the receivership court for a summary hearing;
(3)the order must state the time and date of its issuance; and
(4)the order may not continue in effect beyond the time and date set for the return of summons, unless the receivership court expressly enters one or more orders extending the restraining order.
(e)If a temporary restraining order is not requested, the receivership court shall cause summons to be issued. The summons must specify a return date not later than the 30th day after the date of issuance and that an answer must be filed at or before the return date.
