amotion


amotion
A removal, such as the eviction of a tenant or a removal from office. The term relates to officers of a corporation, not to members, and is the removal of such an officer from his office, still leaving him a member of the corporation. It is distinguishable from "disfranchisement" which only applies to members and which destroys or takes away their right of being a member. See Richards v Clarksburg, 30 W Va 491, 496, 4 SE 774. See eviction; removal from office.
