CA Corp Code 5510 + seem to allow proxies to achieve a quorum and to take actions "if allowed"
5516 allows for unanimous consent "if allowed"
Does this mean if the by-laws permit, both can be so used? Thx

Yes, a California nonprofit public benefit corporation can use proxies to meet a quorum and to take actions if it's allowed in the corporation's bylaws. Similarly, the use of unanimous consent is also allowed if it's permitted by the bylaws.

The phrase "full authority" does not provide enough information. If your mother added your father as a co-owner, then the account would be an asset countable to your father and, yes, the transfer could generate a penalty period but that would be if your mother applies for Medicaid, not...

Yes it is illegal for an employer to knowingly employ those without the legal right to work in the US. However, you have no standing to bring a legal action. The law is to be enforced by Immigration/Homeland Security. The law is found in the Immigration laws, specifically the IRCA.

Well, the issue would be whether there is any evidence that the entity responsible for maintaining that bathroom was negligent in maintaining the air filters, or knew of such harmful substance existing in the filters and allowed it to remain there causing actual injury to users of the restroom.
