http://nycourts.law.com/CourtDocumentViewer.asp?view=Document&docID=46458 Justice Cahn PETITIONER, A member of respondent labor union’s board of directors, sought receipts underlying certain union financial records. The union’s treasurer denied petitioner’s request for lack of just or reasonable cause. In his motion to compel the union’s president and treasurer to provide the receipts to its directors, petitioner contended that he did not need cause to access the receipts so as to properly perform his duties as a director responsible for exercising control over union expenditures. The court denied petitioner’s motion, finding, among other things, that unless the board of directors votes to review materials underlying a financial statement, an individual director lacks authority to access those materials. The court observed that, as a director, petitioner would presumably have become aware of any improperly made expenditures and would then be able to assert “just cause” to examine the union’s books and records pursuant to 12 New York Codes, Rules and Regulations �520-2.1.
