    I disagree with you on “However, if there is a motion to remove X from the board, I believe X has a right to vote on that motion”.

    A cursory review of the lengthy entry in Roberts Rules of Order Newly Revised (11th edition) indicates that after a trial (on a serious issue, of course) that “When the closing arguments have been completed, the accused must leave the room”. (Page 667) The assembly then proceeds to debate a decision.

    It goes without saying (so I’ll say it anyway ;-): check your bylaws to see what they say. If the bylaws are silent, then refer to the rules of order adopted by the condominium corporation.
