A unanimous Appellate Division, First Department, panel yesterday ruled that the former president of the non-profit National Arts Club, O. Aldon James Jr., cannot bring a derivative lawsuit on behalf of the club accusing its current and former directors of wasting corporate assets, because James himself was removed from the club for misusing funds, creating a conflict of interest.
