PER CURIAM.

After examining the briefs and appellate record, this panel has determined unanimously that oral argument would not materially assist the determination of this appeal. See Fed.R.App.P. 34(a); 10th Cir.R. 34.1.9. The case is therefore ordered submitted without oral argument.

On October 5, 1989, Savers' conservatorship was replaced with a receivership and plaintiff Resolution Trust Corporation was named as receiver.
