Section 1313.05 | Election of trustee by creditors.


When a creditor of an assignor provided for in section 1313.01 of the Revised Code, files a complaint alleging that the assignees named in the deed of assignment, or the trustees appointed by the probate court, for the benefit of creditors are not suitable persons to administer the trust, or that their administration thereof will not be for the best interests of the creditors and assignor, the court thereupon shall issue a citation to such assignees, or trustees, and to the assignor if resident within the state, to appear before it at a time to be named in the citation. If, on the hearing, it appears to the court that such complaint is true, and a petition is filed with the court, signed by creditors of the assignor, who own not less than one thousand dollars of debts against him, and their validity is shown by the schedule of debts on file or otherwise established to its satisfaction, praying for permission to elect trustees, the court by its order shall fix a time for such election and cause notices to be sent by mail or otherwise to each creditor of the assignor, specifying a time when the creditors shall meet at the courtroom for the election of trustees.
