Delinquency Proceeding Law and Legal Definition

Delinquency proceeding refers to a proceeding in a juvenile court. A juvenile delinquency proceeding is a civil action rather than a criminal proceeding. [Rinaker v. Superior Court, 62 Cal. App. 4th 155 (Cal. App. 3d Dist. 1998)].

Within the meaning of the Uniform Insurers Liquidation Act, delinquency proceeding means any proceeding commenced against an insurer for the purpose of liquidating, rehabilitating, reorganizing, or conserving such insurer. [Rev. Code Wash. (ARCW) § 48.99.010 (2)].
