  1. RONR, 11th ed., pgs. 650-651 provides the procedure for "Remedies for abuse of authority by the chair in a meeting" this recently occurred in a board meeting where the chair ruled a motion dilatory. A member went through a proper appeal of the decision and called on the body to vote. The chairman ignored it and proceeded. When confronted again he said it was dilatory and continued with the meeting. A number of new members on the board and I believe they were intimidated to confront the chair and were afraid (too timid?) and let the meeting proceed. What can be done when the chair ignores a proper appeal of a decision and fails to allow a vote for an appeal? Thanks in advance. PS there is a video of this but I have not been able to obtain it yet. If I do, I will share it if that is allowed.
