The Attorney-General has instituted this proceeding against respondent Independent Northern Klans, Inc., a not-for-profit corporation under section 1101 (subd [a], par ) of the Not-For-Profit Corporation Law, and for injunctive relief against violations of article 5-A of the Civil Rights Law.

The court at Special Term held that section 53 is constitutional, and we are bound to sustain this ruling under People ex rel. Bryant v Zimmerman (241 N.Y. 405, affd
