1. All proceedings to which the insolvent insurer is a party or in which it is obligated to defend a party shall be stayed from the date of the insolvency to and including the date set as the deadline for the filing of claims against the insolvent insurer or its receiver.  However, upon application, the court having jurisdiction of the receivership, may lengthen or shorten the period, either as to all claims or as to any particular claim.  The association may, at the option of the association, waive such stay as to specific cases involving covered claims.

2. As to any covered claims based on the default of an insurer who is or who becomes insolvent, or based on the failure of an insurer to defend an insured, the association, on its own behalf or on behalf of the insured, is entitled to set the default aside and defend such claim on its merits.
