Galen Insurance Company (“Galen”) was ordered liquidated on May 31, 2017 by the Cole County Circuit Court when it entered a Judgment, Decree and Final Order of Liquidation, Case No. 17AC-CC00005. Chlora Lindley-Myers, and her successors as Director of the Missouri Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration was appointed Liquidator.
