             100      Be it enacted by the Legislature of the state of Utah:
             101          Section 1. Section 13-32a-109 is amended to read:
             102           13-32a-109. Holding period for articles.
             103          (1) (a) The pawnbroker may sell any article pawned to the pawnbroker:
             104          (i) after the expiration of the contract period between the pawnbroker and the pledgor;
             105      and
             106          (ii) if the pawnbroker has complied with the requirements of Section 13-32a-106
             107      regarding reporting to the central database and Section 13-32a-103 .
             108          (b) If an article, including scrap jewelry, is purchased by a pawn or secondhand
             109      business or a coin dealer, the pawn or secondhand business or coin dealer may sell the article
             110      after the pawn or secondhand business or coin dealer has held the article for 15 days and
             111      complied with the requirements of Section 13-32a-106 regarding reporting to the central
             112      database and Section 13-32a-103 , except that pawn, secondhand, and coin dealer businesses are
             113      not required to hold precious metals or coins under this Subsection (1)(b).


             114          (c) This Subsection (1) does not preclude a law enforcement agency from requiring a
             115      pawn or secondhand business to hold an article if necessary in the course of an investigation.
             116          (i) If the article was pawned, the law enforcement agency may require the article be
             117      held beyond the terms of the contract between the pledgor and the pawn broker.
             118          (ii) If the article was sold to the pawn or secondhand business, the law enforcement
             119      agency may require the article be held if the pawn or secondhand business has not sold the
             120      article.
             121          (d) If the law enforcement agency requesting a hold on property under this Subsection
             122      (1) is not the local law enforcement agency, the requesting law enforcement agency shall notify
             123      the local law enforcement agency of the request and also the pawn or secondhand business.
             124          (2) If a law enforcement agency requires the pawn or secondhand business to hold an
             125      article as part of an investigation, the agency shall provide to the pawn or secondhand business
             126      a hold ticket issued by the agency, which:
             127          (a) states the active case number;
             128          (b) confirms the date of the hold request and the article to be held; and
             129          (c) facilitates the ability of the pawn or secondhand business to track the article when
             130      the prosecution takes over the case.
             131          (3) If an article is not seized by a law enforcement agency that has placed a hold on the
             132      property, the property shall remain in the custody of the pawn or secondhand business until
             133      further disposition by the law enforcement agency, and as consistent with this chapter.
             134          (4) The initial hold by a law enforcement agency is for a period of 90 days. If the
             135      article is not seized by the law enforcement agency, the article shall remain in the custody of
             136      the pawn or secondhand business and is subject to the hold unless exigent circumstances
             137      require the purchased or pawned article to be seized by the law enforcement agency.
             138          (5) (a) A law enforcement agency may extend any hold for up to an additional 90 days
             139      when exigent circumstances require the extension.
             140          (b) When there is an extension of a hold under Subsection (5)(a), the requesting law
             141      enforcement agency shall notify the pawn or secondhand business that is subject to the hold


             142      prior to the expiration of the initial 90 days.
             143          (c) A law enforcement agency may not hold an item for more than the 180 days
             144      allowed under Subsections (5)(a) and (b) without obtaining a court order authorizing the hold.
             145          (6) A hold on an article under Subsection (2) takes precedence over any request to
             146      claim or purchase the article subject to the hold.
             147          (7) When the purpose for the hold on or seizure of an article is terminated, the law
             148      enforcement agency requiring the hold or seizure shall within 15 days after the termination:
             149          (a) notify the pawn or secondhand business in writing that the hold or seizure has been
             150      terminated;
             151          (b) return the article subject to the seizure to the pawn or secondhand business; or
             152          (c) if the article is not returned to the pawn or secondhand business, advise the pawn or
             153      secondhand business either in writing or electronically of the specific alternative disposition of
             154      the article.
             155          (8) If the law enforcement agency does not notify the pawn or secondhand business
             156      that a hold on an item has expired, the pawn or secondhand business shall send a letter by
             157      registered or certified [United States] mail to the law enforcement agency that ordered the hold
             158      and inform the agency that the holding period has expired. The law enforcement agency shall
             159      respond within 30 days by:
             160          (a) confirming that the holding period has expired and that the pawn or secondhand
             161      business may manage the item as if acquired in the ordinary course of business; or
             162          (b) providing written notice to the pawn or secondhand business that a court order has
             163      continued the period of time for which the item shall be held.
             164          (9) The written notice under Subsection (8)(b) is considered provided when:
             165          (a) personally delivered to the pawn or secondhand business with a signed receipt of
             166      delivery;
             167          (b) delivered to the pawn or secondhand business by registered or certified [United
             168      States] mail; or
             169          (c) delivered by any other means with the mutual assent of the law enforcement agency


             170      and the pawn or secondhand business.
             171          (10) If the law enforcement agency does not respond within 30 days under Subsection
             172      (8), the pawn or secondhand business may manage the item as if acquired in the ordinary
             173      course of business.
             174          Section 2. Section 16-10a-740 is amended to read:
             175           16-10a-740. Procedure in derivative proceedings.

             183          (2) A shareholder may not commence or maintain a derivative proceeding unless the
             184      shareholder:

             186      complained of; or
             187          (ii) became a shareholder through transfer by operation of law from one who was a
             188      shareholder at the time of the act or omission complained of; and
             189          (b) fairly and adequately represents the interests of the corporation in enforcing the
             190      right of the corporation.
             191          (3) (a) A shareholder may not commence a derivative proceeding until:
             192          (i) a written demand has been made upon the corporation to take suitable action; and
             193          (ii) 90 days have expired from the date the demand described in Subsection (3)(a)(i) is
             194      made unless:
             195          (A) the shareholder is notified before the 90 days have expired that the demand has
             196      been rejected by the corporation; or
             197          (B) irreparable injury to the corporation would result by waiting for the expiration of


             198      the 90-day period.
             199          (b) A complaint in a derivative proceeding shall be:
             200          (i) verified; and

             203          (c) A derivative proceeding shall comply with the procedures of Utah Rules of Civil

             208      complaint; and
             209          (ii) a person or group described in Subsection (4) is conducting an active review of the
             210      allegations in good faith.
             211          (e) If a corporation proposes to dismiss a derivative proceeding pursuant to Subsection
             212      (4)(a), discovery by a shareholder following the filing of the derivative proceeding in
             213      accordance with this section:
             214          (i) shall be limited to facts relating to:
             215          (A) whether the person or group described in Subsection (4)(b) or (4)(f) is independent
             216      and disinterested;
             217          (B) the good faith of the inquiry and review by the person or group described in
             218      Subsection (4)(b) or (4)(f); and
             219          (C) the reasonableness of the procedures followed by the person or group described in
             220      Subsection (4)(b) or (4)(f) in conducting its review; and
             221          (ii) may not extend to any facts or substantive matters with respect to the act, omission,
             222      or other matter that is the subject matter of the derivative proceeding.
             223          (4) (a) A derivative proceeding shall be dismissed by the court on motion by the
             224      corporation if a person or group specified in Subsections (4)(b) or (4)(f) determines in good
             225      faith after conducting a reasonable inquiry upon which its conclusions are based that the


             226      maintenance of the derivative proceeding is not in the best interests of the corporation.
             227          (b) Unless a panel is appointed pursuant to Subsection (4)(f), the determination in
             228      Subsection (4)(a) shall be made by:
             229          (i) a majority vote of independent directors present at a meeting of the board of
             230      directors if the independent directors constitute a quorum; or
             231          (ii) a majority vote of a committee consisting of two or more independent directors
             232      appointed by a majority vote of independent directors present at a meeting of the board of
             233      directors, whether or not such independent directors appointing the committee constituted a
             234      quorum.
             235          (c) None of the following shall by itself cause a director to be considered not
             236      independent for purposes of this section:
             237          (i) the nomination or election of the director by persons:
             238          (A) who are defendants in the derivative proceeding; or
             239          (B) against whom action is demanded;
             240          (ii) the naming of the director as:
             241          (A) a defendant in the derivative proceeding; or
             242          (B) a person against whom action is demanded; or
             243          (iii) the approval by the director of the act being challenged in the derivative
             244      proceeding or demand if the act resulted in no personal benefit to the director.
             245          (d) If a derivative proceeding is commenced after a determination has been made
             246      rejecting a demand by a shareholder, the complaint shall allege with particularity facts
             247      establishing either:
             248          (i) that a majority of the board of directors did not consist of independent directors at
             249      the time the determination was made; or
             250          (ii) that the requirements of Subsection (4)(a) have not been met.
             251          (e) (i) If a majority of the board of directors does not consist of independent directors at
             252      the time the determination is made rejecting a demand by a shareholder, the corporation has
             253      the burden of proving that the requirements of Subsection (4)(a) have been met.


             254          (ii) If a majority of the board of directors consists of independent directors at the time
             255      the determination is made rejecting a demand by a shareholder, the plaintiff has the burden of
             256      proving that the requirements of Subsection (4)(a) have not been met.
             257          (f) (i) The court may appoint a panel of one or more independent persons upon motion
             258      by the corporation to make a determination whether the maintenance of the derivative
             259      proceeding is in the best interests of the corporation.
             260          (ii) If the court appoints a panel under Subsection (4)(f)(i), the plaintiff has the burden
             261      of proving that the requirements of Subsection (4)(a) have not been met.
             262          (g) A person may appeal from an interlocutory order of a court that grants or denies a
             263      motion to dismiss brought pursuant to Subsection (4)(a).
             264          (5) (a) A derivative proceeding may not be discontinued or settled without the court's
             265      approval.
             266          (b) If the court determines that a proposed discontinuance or settlement will
