(215 ILCS 5/538.9)
    Sec. 538.9. Action regarding insolvent company records.
    (a) In this Section, "claims information" includes files, records, and electronic data.
    (b) The Fund may bring an action against any third-party administrator, agent, attorney, or other representative of the insolvent insurer to obtain custody and control of all claims information related to an insolvent company that are appropriate or necessary for the Fund or a similar association in other states to carry out its duties under this Article. In such an action, the Fund shall have the absolute right through emergency equitable relief to obtain custody and control of such claims information in possession of such third-party administrator, agent, attorney or other representative of the insolvent insurer, regardless of where that claims information may be physically located. In bringing an action under this Section, the Fund shall not be subject to any defense, lien (possessory or otherwise), or other legal or equitable ground whatsoever for refusal to surrender such claims information that might be asserted against the liquidator of the insolvent insurers. To the extent that litigation is required for the Fund to obtain custody and control of the claims information requested and it results in the relinquishment of claims information to the Fund after refusal to provide that information in response to a written demand, the court shall award the Fund its costs, expenses, and reasonable attorney's fees incurred in bringing the action. This Section shall have the same effect on the rights and remedies that the custodian of such claims information may have against the insolvent insurers, so long as these rights and remedies do not conflict with the rights of the Fund to custody and control of the claims information under this Article.
