I was (I resigned over this issue) on the board of directors

I was (I resigned over this issue) on the board of directors of a local 501c3 table tennis club.  during our annual general meeting a group of 8 candidates (the current secretary was not one of the approved candidates, see below) for the upcoming board of directors was approved.  it was agreed that members were to have one week to vote for up to 5 candidates for the board.a few days after the meeting, the secretary with apparent approval from the president, decided that one candidate should not be allowed to run because his annual dues had not been paid.  the candidate not allowed to run is an elderly irascible gentleman in ill health with a history of bad blood with the secretary.  I immediately offered and did pay the elderly gentlman's dues.voting commenced immediately after the meeting.  the candidates were listed with letters a-h adjacent to their names.  we voted by writing the letters associated with each of 5 candidates on a slip of paper and giving it to the president.mid week, the secretary forwarded a new candidate list to the membership with his name replacing the elderly gentleman's in the 'b' position.  as a setting board member, I protested this via email immediately and demanded a correction.  I was denied by the president and secretary and therefore resigned via email.the secretary is well healed and likely to have a large umbrella policy.  the elderly gentleman is not well healed and being an accepted member of the table tennis community is of inordinate value to his mental health.is there a case?
