|Do not bombard the corporation
with numerous requests to examine
documents and do not make multiple requests to examine the same
documents. The lawyer will use the number of requests to argue that
your requests are a form of harassment or oppression, you have become a
nuisance and you are hindering the corporation's ability to manage its affairs.
|Remember that the manager or
board members do not have to answer any of
your questions. All they have to do is give you access to examine
documents. They do not have to explain what the documents mean.
|If the board made a decision,
they do not have to explain why they made
that decision and not a different one or what criterion they used when
making their decisions.
|It is important that you have
not given the board any tangible reasons
to claim that your requests to examine the records is a fishing
expedition for a lawsuit, to help you conduct an investigation or to
further your personal political aspirations.
|Most likely the manager and the
directors will treat you differently
after you request to examine records.
