Subject: [BOARD] Disciplinary Hearing Action on Charge #4.
Date: Wed, 17 Aug 2011 19:13:34 -0700 (PDT)


The final charge against Mr. Daryl Lytton considered by the Disciplinary Hearing was Charge #4:
 
4) Since 15 May 2003, Mr. Lytton has defrauded the genealogical community
the USGenWeb Project was created to serve, by soliciting financial
contributions via PayPal to webroots.org/WebRoots, Inc. while falsely
claiming it is a "nonprofit public benefit corporation" (a public charity).
Such solicitation is in violation of Nevada Revised Statute NRS 598.1305,
prohibited deceptive trade practices, where Mr. Lytton currently resides,
and the California Corporation Code, where he registered the corporation.

After much deliberation, the finding on Charge #4 is:
 
"The conduct exhibited by Mr. Lytton as outlined in Charge #4 is of concern to this hearing panel.  However, the charged conduct may be subject to further action by State and perhaps Federal authority.  Therefore, by majority vote, Charge #4 is dismissed by this panel without a finding of guilt or innocence."

The voting tally is as follows:
 
Voting to Agree: Sherri Bradley, Alice Allen, Bill Oliver, Nancy Beach, Ann Allen Geohagen, Les Shockey, Pat Asher, Linda Lewis
 
Voting to Disagree: Tina Vickery, Jeff Kemp, Denise Wells
 
Not voting: Cyndie Enfinger, Pauli Smith
 
The disciplinary hearing is now concluded.
 
Respectfully Submitted,
 
Larry Flesher
Chair
