  375.1214.  Denial of claim — appeal procedure. — 1.  When a claim is denied in whole or in part by the liquidator, written notice of the determination shall be given to the claimant or his attorney by first class mail at the address shown in the proof of claim.  Within sixty days from the mailing of the notice, the claimant may file his objections with the liquidator.  If no such filing is made the claimant may not further object to the determination.

  2.  Whenever objections are filed with the liquidator and the liquidator does not alter his denial of the claim as a result of the objections, the liquidator shall ask the court for a hearing as soon as practicable and give notice of the hearing by first class mail to the claimant or his attorney and to any other persons directly affected, not less than ten nor more than thirty days before the date of the hearing.  The matter may be heard by the court or by a court-appointed referee.  Hearings before court-appointed referees shall be conducted in an informal manner and the formal rules of evidence shall not apply.  The referee shall submit written findings of fact and conclusions of law along with his recommendation for disposition which shall become final if a motion for reconsideration before the court is not filed by the liquidator or claimant with the court within fifteen days that notice of such findings and conclusions is mailed to the parties.  The motion for reconsideration shall allege either the existence of new facts which could not, with reasonable diligence, have been discovered and presented before the referee, or such erroneous conclusions of law, that would justify reconsideration of the claim by the court.  A motion for reconsideration based upon erroneous conclusions of law may be decided by the court, after opportunity for response by the prevailing party, without necessity of hearing.  A motion for reconsideration not ruled upon by the court within ninety days after the motion is filed shall be deemed denied for purposes of appeal.
