Declaratory actions - Averments of plaintiff.
The plaintiff in an action may aver as a separate aspect or equity that the parent organization has made or sanctioned material changes in the laws, rules, social creed, or jurisdictional system with respect to social standards, practices, or policies which changes are opposed to the views, beliefs, or way of life of the majority group and which changes are substantially and materially different from the status of the laws, rules, social creed, or jurisdictional system of the parent organization with respect to its social standards, practices, or policies existing at the time the local organization became affiliated or merged with the parent organization, and may further aver that changes, insofar as they negate or depart from the basic intent and understanding of the majority group, are constructively fraudulent, collusive, or arbitrary, as those terms are defined or referred to in the law. Upon proof of the averments, the plaintiff shall be entitled to the relief provided by this article.
