for the purpose of enforcing the by-laws of some corporation?
A subtle inference can also be made to the constituion as such, and
that is that it's authors were aware that they were writing within the
scope of persons (includes corporations), but went to the pains of
With this I don't intend to say that defending in a Washington State
venue sounds all that attractive. It appears that a procedure allows for
change of venue to Washington. But don't believe me, I'm a theorist.
