F.S. 607.1409
607.1409 Court proceedings.
(1) A dissolved corporation that has filed a notice under s. 607.1407(1)(a) or published a notice under s. 607.1407(1)(b) may file an application with the circuit court in the applicable county for a determination of the amount and form of security to be provided for payment of claims that are contingent or have not been made known to the dissolved corporation or that are based on an event occurring after the effective date of dissolution but that, based on the facts known to the dissolved corporation, are reasonably estimated to arise after the effective date of dissolution. Provision need not be made for any claim that is or is reasonably anticipated to be barred under s. 607.1407(2).
(2) Within 10 days after the filing of the application under subsection (1), notice of the proceeding shall be given by the dissolved corporation to each claimant holding a contingent claim whose identity and contingent claim is known to the dissolved corporation. Such notice shall be accompanied by a copy of ss. 607.1405-607.1410.
(3) In any proceeding under this section, the court may appoint a guardian ad litem to represent all claimants whose identities are unknown. The reasonable fees and expenses of such guardian, including all reasonable expert witness fees, shall be paid by the dissolved corporation.
(4) Provision by the dissolved corporation for security in the amount and the form ordered by the court under subsection (1) shall satisfy the dissolved corporation’s obligations with respect to claims that are contingent, have not been made known to the dissolved corporation, or are based on an event occurring after the effective date of dissolution, and such claims may not be enforced against a shareholder who received assets in liquidation.
