Issuance of Surrender Warrant by Secretary of State The Secretary of State is not mandated to surrender an individual upon a showing of extraditability, but is permitted by statute to order the individual be delivered to the authorized agent of such foreign government. This discretion is an important provision in extradition proceedings. As one court of appeals has stated, “[t]he need for flexibility in the exercise of Executive discretion is heightened in international extradition proceedings… [read post]

Scope and Content of Surrender Warrant Issued by Secretary of State Authorization is given to the Secretary of State to surrender the individual to be “tried” for the offense or offenses for which he has been found extraditable. Absent treaty language at least insinuating that a convicted individual serve his sentence in the requesting country, it appears the Secretary of State can only authorize the individual be surrendered for trial. In addition, the Secretary of State may only order the… [read post]

California Corporations Code § 318 has been on the books since 1993, Cal Stats. 1993, c. 508.  That section required the Secretary of State to develop and maintain a registry of “distinguished women and minorities” who are available to serve on corporate boards of directors.   In 1999, the Secretary of State transferred this responsibility to California State University, Fullerton which maintained the registry until 2003 when the registry was discontinued.  Recently, Assembly Member V.… [read post]

The New York Times has entered the Florida fray involving the merit retention race for Supreme Court Justices Pariente, Lewis and Quince. Their article, I think, sets forth the most succinct and accurate depiction of what has been happening in Florida’s merit retention race. The concluding paragraph of the article contains perhaps the most chilling effects of what Tea Partiers and other groups are trying to accomplish: “If the three justices lose their retention battle, it would give Mr. Scott… [read post]

Corporation officers came to office. Their corporation (1) had not file annual reports with the secretary of state in several years. (2) Had not had annual meeting of shareholders and directors in longer period. Both are big no-no's. Just before we sent in the annual reports, N.C. Secretary of State administratively dissolves. Finally we get to a live person in the department, reason-revenue non-compliance. read more [read post]

Novelty does not mean better.  With the change from 2013 to 2014, California repealed, albeit unconstitutionally, the Beverly-Killea Limited Liability Company Act (former California Corporations Code sections 17000 – 17657), and installed in its place the California Revised Uniform Limited Liability Company Act” (California Corporations Code sections 17701.01 – 17713.13).  See California’s New LLC Act – Call Me Laocoon, But I Foresee A… [read post]

In the waning days of the 2001-2002 legislative session, then Assemblymember Kevin Shelley gutted and amended AB 55.  As introduced, AB 55 would have amended the Elections Code.  Instead, AB 55 became the vehicle for the enactment of the deeply flawed California Corporate Disclosure Act. In the ensuing years, most practitioners and their clients have focused disclosure requirements of AB 55.  However, AB 55 also established a fund for providing restitution to the “victims of corporate… [read post]

Assembly Member Richard Gordon introduced AB 657 on February 16 with Assembly Member Joan Buchanan as a co-author.  The bill would require the… [read post]

Swearing Is Required By The California Constitution[1] When I was appointed Commissioner of Corporations, I took an oath to support the U.S. and California constitutions.  Although I don’t recall inquiring about the source of the oath at the time, the oath (and its text) is set forth in Article XX, Section 3 of the California constitution.  The constitution goes on to prohibit any other oath, declaration, or test as a qualification for any public office or employment.  The Government Code… [read post]

This week, California Secretary of State Debra Bowen testified before Assembly Budget… [read post]
