Sec. 1701 et seq.), as amended.

If the association is an institution insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation shall be tendered appointment as receiver or coreceiver.

The court, after citing the commissioner to show cause why further proceedings should not be enjoined and after hearing and determination of the facts, may dismiss the application or enjoin the commissioner from further proceedings and direct the commissioner to surrender the property and business to that association.
