23-70-117. Subscribers' liability.

(a) The liability of each subscriber, other than as to a nonassessable policy, for the obligations of the reciprocal insurer shall be an individual, several, and proportionate liability and not a joint liability.

(b) Except as to a nonassessable policy, each subscriber shall have a contingent assessment liability, in the amount provided for in the power of attorney or in the subscribers' agreement, for payment of actual losses and expenses incurred while his or her policy was in force. The contingent liability may be at the rate of not less than one (1) nor more than ten (10) times the premium or premium deposit stated in the policy, and the maximum aggregate thereof shall be computed in the manner set forth in 23-70-119.

(c) Each assessable policy issued by the insurer shall contain a statement of the contingent liability.

(d) (1) No action shall lie against any subscriber upon any obligation claimed against the insurer until a final judgment has been obtained against the insurer and remains unsatisfied for thirty (30) days.

(2) Any judgment shall be binding upon each subscriber only in such proportion as his or her interests may appear and in an amount not exceeding his or her contingent liability, if any.
