VIOLATION OF BY LAWS

Recommended Posts

Guest LVK

Can a body, or chair/leader of a body, choose to ignore existing by laws for purposes of expediency?

What happens to a motion, made and passed by the body, that violates by laws?

Any motion that violates by laws is an improper motion any action taken on an improper motion is null and void.

Comment essentially deleted because I mis-read the original post.  I thought the question was about adopting a motion in violation of law rather than one which violates the bylaws.

I was thinking he said violation of By-Laws. Reference pg 343 under Improper Motions.

You are right.  He did, and I deleted my comment just as you were posting yours.  :)

Someone should raise a point of order that the motion violates the bylaws. A bylaw violation is a continuing breach.

The answer to this question depends upon the exact nature of the motion involved. 

PS - "Bylaws" is one word.

We don’t have sufficient information to answer this question. Please provide more information regarding the motion and the conflict with the bylaws.
