624.85 Administrative election of proceedings.--If the office determines to act under authority of this part, the sequence of its acts and proceedings shall be as set forth herein. However, it is a purpose and substance of this part to allow the office administrative discretion in the event of insurer delinquencies and, in furtherance of that purpose, the office is hereby authorized, in respect to insurer delinquencies or suspected delinquencies, to proceed and administer either under the provisions of this part or under any other applicable law, or under the provisions of this part in conjunction with other applicable law, and it is so provided. Nothing contained in this part or in any other provision of law shall preclude the office from initiating judicial proceedings to place an insurer in conservation, rehabilitation, or liquidation proceedings or other delinquency proceedings however designated under the laws of this state, regardless of whether the office has previously initiated administrative supervision proceedings under this part against the insurer. The entry of an order of seizure, rehabilitation, or liquidation pursuant to chapter 631 shall terminate all proceedings pending pursuant to this part.
