Judge: COTTRELL

First Paragraph:

In this appeal, the Attorney General filed suit to dissolve two
nonprofit public benefit corporations.  Both the Attorney General and
the nonprofit corporations filed motions for summary judgment.  The
trial court granted summary judgment for the Attorney General finding
that the nonprofit corporations had abandoned their charitable
purposes and devoted themselves to private purposes.  The trial court
ordered the appointment of a receiver to marshal and preserve the
remaining assets.  For the following reasons, we affirm the decision
of the trial court.
