If, in the judgment of the trustees appointed as provided in section 2733.21 of the Revised Code, any claims filed with them as provided in section 2733.24 of the Revised Code are for any reason not valid claims against the estate of the corporation, the trustees shall notify the claimants that their respective claims are rejected by written notice by registered mail, directed to the claimants' last known address. Such claimants, at any time within ninety days from the mailing of such notice of rejection, may sue such trustees for the recovery of such claims in any court of competent jurisdiction in the county in which such corporation has or had its last principal place of business. Should such suit finally terminate in favor of the claimant, the judgment therein obtained by him is entitled to share with other claims against the corporation, in the manner and to the same extent as if the claim had been allowed in the first instance by the trustees. Upon the failure of a claimant to bring suit within ninety days from the date of the mailing of the notice that it is rejected by the trustees, the claim is barred against the trustees or the property of the corporation, unless the court for good cause shown orders otherwise.
