TITLE 34 - LABOR AND WORKMEN'S COMPENSATION
34:15-120.27 - Stay of proceedings
13. a. All proceedings in which an insolvent member is a party, or is obligated to defend a party, in any court or before any quasi-judicial body or administrative board in this State shall be stayed for up to six months, or for such additional period from the date the member becomes insolvent, as is deemed necessary by a court of competent jurisdiction to permit proper defense by the association of all pending causes of action as to any covered claims arising from a judgment under any decision, verdict, or finding based on the default of the insolvent member. The association, either on its own behalf or on behalf of the insolvent member, may apply to have that judgment, order, decision, verdict or finding set aside by the same court or administrator that made that judgment, order, decision, verdict or finding and shall be permitted to defend against that claim on the merits. If requested by the association, the stay of proceedings may be shortened or waived.
b. In any proceeding in bankruptcy in which the payment of benefits has been stayed, the association shall appear and move to lift the stay so that the orderly administration of claims can proceed.
