NOW on this the 28th day of June 2011, this matter comes on

sufficiently advised, finds and orders as follows:

at now-defunct ANB Financial, N.A., in the name of MY
ICIS, Inc. (the “Account”), which at the time was
a FDIC’s Receiver’s Certificate in the sum of
$498,712.78, which constituted the uninsured portion of
The reasons for these findings are set out in the Court’s
Amended and Substituted Order.
(See Doc. 54).
Bentley advises in its motion that it has received from
the FDIC the $100,000 representing the insured portion of the
Account but, despite repeated requests, the FDIC has not provided
Bentley with the Receiver’s Certificate.
In addition, Bentley advises the Court that, under the
Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, as extended by the Helping
Families Save Their Homes Act, Congress temporarily increased the

to January 1, 2008, pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform
Act and Consumer Protection Act, which is codified at 18 U.S.C. §
relevant part, as follows:
the term "standard maximum deposit insurance amount"

any other provision of law, the increase in the
standard maximum deposit insurance amount to $ 250,000
shall apply to depositors in any institution for which
conservator on or after January 1, 2008, and before
October 3, 2008.
ANB was placed into receivership on May 9, 2008, thus
Bentley asserts that 12 U.S.C. § 1821(a)(1)(E) applies and the
insured portion of the Account was retroactively insured for
$150,000 for the insured portion of the Account from the FDIC.
Bentley further asserts that this payment of $150,000 should
be properly set-off from the Receiver’s Certificate.
The FDIC denies that Bentley is entitled to the relief
that it seeks, but cites no law or fact to refute the authorities
cited by Bentley in its motion.
1821(a)(1)(E), Bentley is entitled to an additional $150,000,
which represents the additional insured portion of the Account.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT Intervener Bentley Investments
of Nevada’s Motion to Turn Over (Doc. 55) is hereby GRANTED.
portion of the ANB account, and that the FDIC is hereby ordered
to pay Bentley such amount within thirty (30) days from the date
of this Order.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Bentley is the proper party to
receive the Receiver’s Certificate in the amount of $348,712.78
($498,712.78 less $150,000), and the FDIC is hereby ordered to
turn over such Receiver’s Certificate to Bentley within thirty
(30) days from the date of this Order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
