To Nick's point, the court in the US can take judicial notice of public 
facts as well that are not presented to them, the issue is that a judge 
must be aware of what he or she does not know...

This is where one hopes that counsel have equipped themselves well in 
filings and arguments.  All too often technical cases are not presented 
in a way that is comprehended by those not part of the system.

I would like to add again, there is a difference between concerns of the 
state/country of incorporation and the choice of law related to 
decisions.  They need not be the same.  I have not heard any issues 
brought up related to CA's not-for-profit law...
