(7) has an officer, director, or manager who has refused to be examined under oath, concerning its affairs, for which purpose the director is authorized to conduct and to enforce by all appropriate and available means an examination under oath in another state or territory of the United States, in which the officer, director, or manager may then presently be, to the full extent permitted by the laws of the other state or territory, this special authorization considered;

(8) has been or is the subject of an application for the appointment of a receiver, trustee, custodian, or sequestrator of the insurer or its property otherwise than under the provisions of this title, but only if the appointment has been made or is imminent and its effect is or would be to oust the courts of this state of jurisdiction;

(11) has failed to remove a person who, in fact, has executive authority in the insurer, whether an officer, manager, general agent, employee, or other person, if the person has been found after notice and hearing by the director to be dishonest or untrustworthy in a way affecting the insurer's business;

(b) The director may apply to the court for an order appointing the director as receiver of a domestic insurer, and directing the director to rehabilitate the insurer if

(2) control of the insurer, whether by stock ownership or otherwise, and whether direct or indirect, is in a person or persons found after notice and hearing to be untrustworthy;

(3) a person who, in fact, has executive authority in the insurer, whether an officer, manager, general agent, director or trustee, employee, or other person, has refused to be examined under oath by the director concerning the insurer's affairs, whether in this state or elsewhere, and after reasonable notice of the fact the insurer has failed to promptly and effectively terminate the employment and status of the person and the person's influence on management.
