Section 1713.31 | Attorney general may enforce duties of officers.


On application in writing to the attorney general by five citizens of the proper county, verified by the oath or affirmation of one of them, setting forth specific charges against any of the fiscal or other agents or trustees of a corporation referred to in section 1713.28 of the Revised Code involving a breach of trust or duty, the attorney general shall give notice thereof to the trustees or agents complained of, and inquire into the truth of such charges. For this purpose he may receive affidavits or enforce, by process from the court of common pleas of Franklin county, the production of papers and the attendance of witnesses before him. If, on testimony or other evidence, he believes any of the charges to be true, he shall proceed by action in that court, in the name of the state, against the delinquent trustees, or fiscal agents, and, on the hearing the court may direct the performance of any duty or the removal of any agents or trustees, and decree such other and further relief as is equitable.
