Hello,

An officer was asked to leave an executive session, and with this absence there was no longer a quorum as prescribed in the bylaws. The absent officer was then voted to be removed from office by the remaining members. The deposed officer was informed of the action taken after executive session had ended. deposed officer tried to raise point of order since no quorum was present and what can the deposed officer do?

Depending on how recalcitrant the other Board members are, he may have to talk to a lawyer.

Has the "deposed" (he wasn't, really, from what you write) office no friend on the Board who can clearly (in the eyes of the other members) raise a point of order at the next Bord meeting?

But be careful what you wish for. If the "removal" action of the Board was completely proper per your bylaws and other rules, except for the lack of a quorum, the Board, at the next meeting when a quorum is present, can simply ratify its removal action and the "deposed officer" will then be really and properly gone.

Well, unless this is a matter of discipline, a member has no obligation to leave when asked to do so. It might be possible, however, to remove that officer, depending on how your bylaws read.
