IMPORTANT NOTICE OF LIQUIDATION AND CLAIMS FILING DEADLINE

TO ALL PERSONS INTERESTED IN THE AFFAIRS OF

SPIRIT COMMERCIAL AUTO RISK RETENTION GROUP, INC.

Spirit Commercial Auto Risk Retention Group

This notice provides important information regarding the liquidation of Spirit Commercial Auto Risk Retention Group, Inc. (“Spirit”).  On February 27, 2019, Spirit was placed in receivership by order (the “Permanent Receivership Order”) of the Eighth Judicial District Court of the State of Nevada (the “Receivership Court”).  Barbara D. Richardson, the Nevada Commissioner of Insurance, is the Receiver of Spirit and Cantilo & Bennett, L.L.P., is the appointed Special Deputy Receiver (“SDR”) of Spirit. On November 6, 2019, the Receivership Court entered its Final Order Placing Spirit into Liquidation (the “Liquidation Order”) and its Final Order Setting Claims Filing Deadline for Spirit and Related Relief (“the Claims Order”).  The orders are available on the “Receivership Documents” page of this web site and should be read in their entirety rather than just reading this notice.

The Claims Order approves a proof of claim (“POC”) process for filing claims against Spirit and establishes October 31, 2020, as the Claims Filing Deadline for the submission of such claims.  All claims against Spirit will be handled as claims against the Spirit receivership estate, and all proceedings are governed by applicable Nevada law.  All claims must be submitted on the approved POC Form (available for download on the “Claims and Appeals” page of this web site).  Late-filed POCs will be barred from sharing in any distribution of Spirit’s assets.  In order for a POC to be considered timely filed, it must be postmarked or delivered to the SDR on or before October 31, 2020.  In addition to being timely filed, claims must also be non-contingent and liquidated in amount by the Claims Filing Deadline to share in any distribution of Spirit’s assets.  Claims that remain contingent and unliquidated after October 31, 2020, will also be barred (subject to any exceptions found in NRS 696B.450, which will be in the Receiver’s sole discretion to determine). 

Please read, and follow the instructions within, the Receivership Claims and Appeals Procedure  (available for download on the “Claims and Appeals” page of this web site) to submit your POC. Failure to complete the POC Form according to the instructions may cause your claim to be delayed or disallowed.  Please also note that although your claim may be approved in whole or in part, the receivership estate may only be able to pay a portion of your approved claim depending on the remaining assets of the estate.

The Liquidation Order directs the Receiver to liquidate and wind down the affairs of Spirit. Future notices about receivership matters, which could impact your rights, will be made through this web site. You may wish to check the site on an ongoing basis to stay informed.  You may request print copies of the POC Form and the Receivership Claims and Appeals Procedure by calling (512) 478-6000, or by writing to Cantilo and Bennett, L.L.P., Attention:  Spirit SDR, P.O. Box 184, Austin, Texas 78767.  You are responsible for keeping the SDR apprised of any change in your address, to assure your receipt of any mailed notices or correspondence.
