Sec. 45.08.511. Priority among security interests and entitlement holders.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in (b) and (c) of this section, if a securities intermediary does not have sufficient interests in a particular financial asset to satisfy both the securities intermediary's obligations to entitlement holders who have security entitlements to that financial asset and the securities intermediary's obligation to a creditor of the securities intermediary who has a security interest in the financial asset, the claims of entitlement holders, other than the creditor, have priority over the claim of the creditor.
(b) A claim of a creditor of a securities intermediary who has a security interest in a financial asset held by a securities intermediary has priority over claims of the securities intermediary's entitlement holders who have security entitlements with respect to the financial asset if the creditor has control over the financial asset.
(c) If a clearing corporation does not have sufficient financial assets to satisfy both the clearing corporation's obligations to entitlement holders who have security entitlements with respect to a financial asset and the clearing corporation's obligation to a creditor of the clearing corporation who has a security interest in the financial asset, the claim of the creditor has priority over the claims of entitlement holders.
