If Landlord elects to relet the Premises as provided in this paragraph, rent that Landlord receives from reletting shall be applied to the payment of:
i. First, any indebtedness from Tenant to Landlord other than rent due from Tenant;
Second, all costs, including for maintenance, incurred by Landlord in reletting;
iii. Third, rent due and unpaid under this Lease. After deducting the payments referred to in this paragraph, any sum remaining from the rent Landlord receives from reletting shall be held by Landlord and applied in payment of future rent as rent becomes due under this Lease. In no event shall Tenant be entitled to any excess rent received by Landlord. If, on the date rent is due under this Lease, the rent received from the reletting is less than the rent due on that date, Tenant shall pay to Landlord, in addition to the remaining rent due, all costs, including for maintenance, Landlord incurred in reletting that remain after applying the rent received from the reletting as provided in this paragraph.
b. Landlord can terminate Tenant’s right to possession of the Premises at any time. No act by Landlord other than giving notice to Tenant shah’ terminate this Lease. Acts of maintenance, efforts to relet the Premises, or the appointment of a receiver on Landlord’s initiative to protect Landlord’s interest under this Lease shall not constitute a termination of Tenant’s right to possession. On termination, Landlord has the right to recover from Tenant:
i. The worth, at the Urne of the award, of the unpaid rent that had been earned at the time of termination of this Lease;
ii. The worth, at the time of the award, of the amount by which the unpaid rent that would have been earned after the date of termination of this Lease until the time of award exceeds the amount of the loss of rent that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided;
iii. The worth, at the time of the award, of the amount by which the unpaid rent for the balance of the Term after the time of award exceeds the amount of the loss of rent that Tenant proves could have been reasonably avoided; and
iv. Any other amount, and court costs, necessary to compensate Landlord for all detriment proximately caused by Tenant’s default.
“The worth, at the time of award,” as used in subsections (1) and (2) is to be computed by allowing interest at the maximum rate an individual is permitted by law to charge. “The worth, at the time of the award,” as referred to in subsection (3), is to be computed by discounting the amount at the discount rate of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco at the time of the award, plus 1%.
a. Landlord shall have the right to subordinate this Lease to any ground lease, deed of trust or mortgage encumbering the Property, and advances made on the security thereof and any renewals, modifications, consolidations, replacements or extensions thereof, whenever made or recorded. Tenant shall cooperate with Landlord and any lender which is acquiring a security interest in the Property or the Lease. Tenant shall execute such further documents and assurances as such lenders may require, provided that Tenant’s obligations under this Lease shall not be increased in any material way (the performance of ministerial acts shall not be deemed material), and Tenant shall not be deprived of its rights under this Lease. Tenant’s right to quiet possession of the Property during the Lease Term shall not be disturbed if Tenant pays the rent and performs all of Tenant’s obligations under this Lease and is not otherwise in default. If any ground lessor, beneficiary or mortgagee elects to have this Lease prior to the lien of its ground lease, deed of trust or mortgage and gives written notice thereof to Tenant, this Lease shall be deemed prior to such ground lease, deed of trust or mortgage whether this Lease is dated prior or subsequent to the date of said ground lease, deed of trust or mortgage or the date of recording thereof. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, as a condition to such subordination, Landlord shall use commercially reasonable efforts to secure from each Mortgagee a non-disturbance agreement reasonably acceptable to Tenant, providing that in the event of a foreclosure, the Mortgagee will recognize the validity of this Lease and, provided that Tenant is not in default, will not disturb Tenant’s possession or its rights under this Lease.
b. If Landlord’s interest in the Property is acquired by any ground lessor, beneficiary under a deed of trust, mortgage, or purchaser at a foreclosure sale, Tenant shall attorn to the transferee of or successor to landlord’s interest in the Property and recognize such transferee or successor as Landlord under this Lease. Tenant waives the protection of any statute or rule of law which gives or purports to give Tenant any right to terminate this Lease or surrender possession of the Property upon the transfer of Landlord’s interest.
c. Tenant shall sign and deliver any instrument(s) or document(s) necessary or appropriate to evidence any such attornment or subordination or agreement to do so. If Tenant fails to do so within ten (10) days after written request, Tenant hereby makes, constitutes and irrevocably appoints Landlord, or any transferee or successor of Landlord, the attorney-in-fact of Tenant to execute and deliver any such instrument(s) or document(s).
26. ESTOPPEL CERTIFICATES:
a. Upon Landlord’s written request, Tenant shall execute, acknowledge and deliver to Landlord a written statement (in a form acceptable to Landlord) certifying: (i) that none of the terms or provisions of titis Lease have been changed (or if they have been changed, stating how they have been changed); (ii) that this Lease has not been cancelled or terminated; (Hi) the last date of payment of the rent and other charges and the time period covered by such payments; (iv) that Landlord is not in default under this Lease (or, if Landlord is claimed to be in default, stating why); and (v) such other representations or information with respect to Tenant or the Lease as Landlord may (in Landlord’s sole and unfettered discretion) request or which any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of the Property may require.

Landlord may give any such statement by Tenant to any prospective purchaser or encumbrancer of the Property. Such purchaser or emcumbrancer may rely conclusively upon such statement as true and correct.
b.

In such event, Tenant shall be estopped from denying the truth of such facts.
27. REMOVAL OF PROPERTY:
a. Tenant shall own all of the personal property to be placed in the Premises by Tenant, to the degree said personal property is not affixed to or a part of the building. Upon removal of Tenant’s property, Tenant shall (at Tenant’s sole expense, in a good workmanlike manner, and in compliance with all applicable laws) repair any damage caused by the removal of Tenant’s property and restore the Premises to the condition required by this Lease. Tenant shall, if so desired by Landlord, remove (at Tenant’s sole expense, in a good workmanlike manner, and in compliance with all applicable laws) any plumbing, fixtures, walls, partitions, shelves, wiring and other improvements which were built or installed by Tenant or by the Landlord to the Tenant’s specifications or at its request, and shall (at Tenant’s sole expense, in a good workmanlike manner, and in compliance with all applicable laws) repair any damage to the Premises into the condition they would have been in but for the installation of the plumbing, fixtures, walls, partitions, shelves, wiring or other improvements or alterations by Tenant or by Landlord at the request of Tenant. Tenant’s obligation to observe the performance of titis covenant shall survive the expiration or sooner termination of Tenant’s rights under this lease.
b.

If Tenant shall not pay the cost of removing and storing any property after it has been stored for a period of thirty (30) days or more, Landlord may, at his option, sell, or permit to be sold, any or all of the property at public or private sale, in the manner and at the proper time, without notice to Tenant, and shall apply the proceeds of the sale: (i) to the cost and expense of the sale, including reasonable attorneys’ fees actually incurred; (ii) to the payment of costs or charges for removing and storing the property; (iii) to the payment of any other sums of money which may then be or thereafter become due Landlord from Tenant under the Lease; and (iv) the balance, if any, to Tenant.
28. WAIVER AND ESTOPPEL:
The waiver by Landlord of any breach by Tenant of any of the provisions of this Lease shall not constitute a continuing waiver or constitute a waiver or estoppel with respect to any subsequent breach by Tenant either of the same or of another provision of this Lease. Landlord’s acceptance of rent and/or other payments following an actual or threatened breach by Tenant of any provisions of this Lease (including, but not limited to, Tenant’s obligation to peacefully surrender possession of the Premises upon the termination of Tenant’s tenancy), with or without Landlord’s knowledge of the breach, shall not constitute or result in any manner of waiver or estoppel with respect to Landlord’s right to enforce any provision of this Lease.
29. SURRENDER OF POSSESSION:
Upon expiration of the term of this Lease, whether by lapse of time or otherwise, Tenant shall promptly and peacefully surrender the Premises to Landlord.
If Tenant shall, with the written consent of Landlord, hold over after the expiration of the term of this Lease, the tenancy shall be on a month-to-month tenancy, which tenancy may be terminated as provided by the laws of the State of California. During that tenancy Tenant agrees to pay per month to Landlord one hundred and fifty percent (150%) of the monthly rental in effect at the end of the Lease term, unless a different rate shall be agreed upon, and to be bound by all of the terms, covenants, and conditions of this Lease so far as applicable to a month-to-month tenancy.
If all of the Premises, or those portions of the Property or Premises as may be required for the reasonable use of the Premises, are taken by eminent domain, this Lease shall automatically terminate as of the date Tenant is required to vacate the Premises and all rentals shall be paid to that date. In case of a taking of a part of the Premises which leaves the remainder of the Premises reasonably tenantable, the rental shall be equitably reduced based on the proportion by which the floor area of the Premises is reduced, the rent reduction to be effective as of the date possession of the portion is delivered to condemning authority. Landlord reserves all rights to damages to the Premises for any taking by eminent domain and Tenant hereby assigns to Landlord any right Tenant may have to the damages to award, and Tenant shall make no claim against Landlord for damages for termination of the leasehold interest or interference with Tenant’s business. Tenant shall have the right, however, to claim and recover from the condemning authority compensation for Tenant’s moving expenses and for the interruption of or damage to Tenant’s business, but only if those damages may be claimed and only if they are awarded in an eminent domain proceeding for the Tenant and not as part of the damages recoverable by Landlord.
Except as otherwise expressly required by law, any and all notices or other communications required or permitted by this Lease or by law shall be in writing and delivered in person or sent by certified mail to Landlord at the same place rent payments are made, and to Tenant at the Premises, or such other address as Tenant may reasonably designate from time to time. Landlord and Tenant may each hereafter designate any change of address as each may wish. Notices mailed shall be deemed given one day after the date of mailing.
33. COSTS AND ATTORNEYS’ FEES:
Tenant shall reimburse Landlord for all reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses, arising from and after the date hereof, incurred by Landlord in connection with the enforcement of Landlord’s rights under this Lease, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses for pre-litigation notices (e.g., for drafting and serving notices to pay rent or quit), trial, appellate proceedings, out-of-court negotiations, workouts and settlements, or for enforcement of rights under any state or federal statute, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses incurred to protect Landlord’s security and attorneys fees, costs and expenses incurred in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings such as (but not limited to) in connection with seeking relief from stay in a bankruptcy proceeding. The term “expenses,” as used herein, means any expenses incurred by Landlord in connection with any of the out-of-court, or state, federal or bankruptcy proceedings referenced above, including but not limited to the fees and expenses of any appraisers, consultants and expert witnesses retained or consulted by Landlord in connection therewith.
Landlord shall also be entitled to Landlord’s attorneys’ fees, costs and expenses incurred in any post-judgment proceedings to collect and enforce the judgment. This provision is separate and several and shall survive the merger of this Lease into any judgment on this Lease.
34. CAPTIONS AND CONSTRUCTION:
Titles to the sections of this Lease are not a part of this Lease and shall have no effect upon the construction or interpretation of any part of it.
Subject to the restrictions on subletting and assignment contained herein, all of the covenants, agreements, terms and conditions contained in this Lease shall apply and be binding upon Landlord and Tenant and their respective heirs, executors, administrators, successors and assigns.
36. ADDITIONAL RENT:
Tenant shall pay any money required to be paid by Tenant under this Lease (other than the base rent described in Section 5) as additional rental. If Tenant does not pay any such additional rental when due and payable, Landlord may advance the necessary monies, and all money so advanced by Landlord shall be deemed additional rent, due and payable on the next succeeding rent due date, and shall bear interest at the maximum legal rate until paid.
37. GOVERNING LAW:
This Lease shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California.
38. LIABILITY OF LANDLORD:
Except as otherwise provided in this Lease or applicable law, for any breach of this Lease the liability of Landlord (including all persons and entities that comprise Landlord, and any successor Landlord), and any recourse by Tenant against Landlord, shall be limited to the interest of Landlord and Landlord’s successors in interest in and to the Premises.
39. TRANSFER OF LANDLORD’S INTEREST:
Landlord has the right (in Landlord’s sole and unfettered discretion) to transfer all or part of Landlord’s interest in the Property, the Premises, and/or this Lease. On such a transfer, Landlord shall automatically be released from all liability accruing under this Lease, and Tenant shall look solely to that transferee for the performance of Landlord’s obligations under this Lease after the date of transfer. Landlord also has the right (in Landlord’s sole and unfettered discretion) to assign Landlord’s interest in this Lease to a mortgage lender as additional security. Such an assignment to a mortgage lender shall not release Landlord from Landlord’s obligations under this Lease, and Tenant shall continue to look to Landlord for the performance of Landlord’s obligations under this Lease.
40. PARTIAL INVALIDITY:
If any provision of this Lease is held by a court of competent jurisdiction to be either invalid, void, or unenforceable, the remaining provisions of this Lease shall remain in full force and effect the unimpaired by the holding.
41. SOLE AND ONLY AGREEMENT:
This instrument constitutes the sole and only agreement between Landlord and Tenant respecting the Premises, the leasing of the Premises to Tenant, or the lease term created under this Lease, and correctly sets forth the obligations of Landlord and Tenant to each other as of its date. Any agreements or representations respecting the Premises or their leasing by Landlord to Tenant not expressly set forth in this instrument are null and void.
42. TIME OF ESSENCE:
Time is expressly declared to be of the essence in this Lease.
This Lease may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

SECOND AMENDMENT TO
This Second Amendment to Lease is made and entered into this 31 day of August 2016, by and between 155 De Haro Associates, LLC, a California limited liability company (“Landlord”) and Volta Industries, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“Tenant”).
A. On February 8, 2016, Landlord and Tenant entered into a lease for the Premises commonly known as 155 De Haro Street, San Francisco, CA (the “Lease”).
B. On April 20, 2016, Landlord and Tenant entered into an Amendment to the Lease (“First Amendment”)(Exhibit C) which modified the Premises to include a fenced interior yard area of approximately 16,000 square feet, but without an attachment specifically outlining the location of this yard area.
C. On May 28, 2016, the neighboring tenant at 10 Carolina St announced to Tenant an intention to advance the fence-line inward on the yard to match their own lease document (location shown herein as Exhibit B).
D. Tenant believed that it was renting the entire interior yard area, as per the First Amendment (Exhibit C), but Landlord objected to this because the area claimed by Tenant included space also leased to another tenant at the Property and exceeded the approximate square footage described in the First Amendment.
E. Landlord and Tenant wish to resolve this dispute and clarify the location of the yard area, and adjust the additional rent that was agreed to be paid by Tenant, all on the terms and conditions hereinafter set forth.
Now therefore, and based upon the foregoing recitals, the parties agree as follows:
|1.||The foregoing recitals are true and correct. |

155 De Haro Associates, LLC, a California limited liability company, as Landlord and

|March 1, 2025 – August 31, 2025 ||$39,955.56 per month|
|3.||Right of First Offer to Lease. Provided that Tenant is not in default, beyond applicable notice and cure periods, under any provision of this Lease, either at the time of the delivery of “Landlord’s Notice” (as hereafter defined) or at the time of the delivery of “Tenant’s Notice” (as hereinafter defined), Landlord hereby grants Tenant a right (“First Right”) to lease the 10 Carolina Street building and related excess land from the date immediately following the Expiration Date and/or Non- Renewal of the existing Tenant (ARCH Drafting Supply, Inc. expiry: 08/31/2021 with 30 days notice prior) for a period not to exceed August 31, 2025 in accordance with and subject to the provisions outlined herein.|
A. Procedure. Prior to leasing the Premises, or any portion thereof, to any other party for any period commencing from and after the Expiration Date/Non- Renewal of the existing Tenant, Landlord shall give Tenant written notice (the “Landlord’s Notice”) of the following basic economic terms upon which Landlord is willing to lease the Premises for the Term not to exceed August 31, 2025 to Tenant or a third party: (i) to Landlord’s good faith determination of the then prevailing market Base Rent; (ii) Additional Rent (i.e., Tenant’s obligation for payment of Tenant’s share of operating expenses and real property taxes); (iii) term (which shall not be shorter than the Minimum Extension Term); (iv) security deposit; (v) Tenant improvement allowance; (vi) options to extend, if any; (vii) rights of first offer or refusal on additional space in the Building, if any. The economic terms shall exclude brokerage commissions and other Landlord payments that do not directly inure to the Tenant’s benefit. Within fifteen (15) business days after Tenant’s receipt of Landlord’s Notice, Tenant shall give Landlord written notice (the “Tenant’s Notice”) pursuant to which Tenant shall elect to (x) lease the Premises upon such Economic Terms and the same non-Economic Terms as set forth in this Lease; (y) refuse to lease the Premises, specifying that such refusal is not based upon the Economic Terms, but upon Tenant’s lack of need for the Premises, as the Economic Terms offered by Landlord for the six (6)- month period elapsing immediately thereafter; or (z) refuse to lease the Premises, specifying that such refusal is based upon said Economic Terms, in which event Tenant shall also specify revised Economic Terms upon which Tenant shall be willing to lease the Premises. In the event that Tenant does not so respond in writing to Landlord’s Notice within said period, Tenant shall be deemed to have elected clause (ii) above.
Third Amendment to Lease
B. Negotiation. In the event Tenant’s Notice elects clause (iii) above, Landlord, within fifteen (15) days after the date of Tenant’s Notice, may elect to either (y) lease the Premises to Tenant upon such revised Economic Terms and the same other non-Economic Terms as set forth in this Lease, or (z) negotiate with Tenant in good faith for a period of thirty (30) days (“Negotiation Period”) Economic Terms acceptable to both parties. Should Landlord elect to lease the Premises to Tenant upon Tenant’s revised Economic Terms, or if, not later than the last day of the Negotiation Period, Landlord and Tenant agree on Economic Terms, then Landlord shall promptly prepare and deliver to Tenant an amendment to this Lease consistent with the foregoing, and Landlord and Tenant shall execute and deliver the amendment within fifteen (15) business days after Tenant’s receipt thereof from Landlord. If Landlord rejects Tenant’s revised Economic Terms, and if Landlord and Tenant do not, acting reasonably, reach agreement upon Economic Terms by the end of the Negotiation Period, Landlord shall be free to lease the Premises from and after the Expiration Date/Non-Renewal to any third party upon economic terms satisfactory to Landlord.
C. Additional Terms. In no event shall Tenant’s First Right shall be subordinate to the rights of any existing or future Tenant of the Building or the Project; it being understood that prior to Landlord’s marketing the Premises for lease commencing immediately following the Expiration Date/Non-Renewal Landlord must first provide a Landlord’s Notice to Tenant. Tenant’s First Right is personal to Tenant and any Permitted Transferee to whom this Lease is assigned or transferred.
|4.||Landlord Recapture Right. In addition to Landlord’s right of approval of any proposed assignment or subletting and without limiting the other provisions of Paragraph 20, within the original lease, except in connection with a Permitted Transfer (defined below) Landlord shall have the option, in the event of any proposed assignment or subletting, to terminate the Lease as to the affected portion of the Premises as of the proposed effective date of such proposed assignment or subletting set forth in Tenant’s notice. Such option to terminate shall be exercised, if at all, by Landlord giving Tenant written notice thereof within thirty (30) days following Landlord’s receipt of Tenant’s written request to permit assignment of sublease of the Premises as required by the Lease. In the event of such termination by Landlord, from and after the effective date of such termination, (which termination date shall be no earlier than ninety (90) days following the date of such termination notice), Landlord and Tenant shall have no further obligations or liabilities to each other with respect to the affected portion of the Premises, except with respect to obligations or liabilities which have accrued as of, or survive, such termination (in the same manner as if such termination date were the date originally fixed for the expiration of the Lease Term). Without in any manner limiting the rights of Landlord, following any such termination by Landlord, Landlord may lease the affected portion of the Premises to the prospective assignee or subtenant proposed by Tenant, without liability to the Tenant. Landlord’s failure to exercise such termination right as herein provided shall not be construed as Landlord’s consent to the proposed assignment or subletting. Notwithstanding the foregoing or anything in the Lease to the contrary, Landlord’s Recapture Right pursuant to this Section 5 shall not apply to any Permitted Transfer.|
|5.||Assignment and Subletting. Section 20 of the Lease is modified by inserting the following paragraph at the end of such section:|
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Lease, Tenant may assign, sublet or otherwise transfer this Lease without first obtaining Landlord’s consent (a “Permitted Transfer”) to (a) a corporation, limited liability company or other entity that results from a merger, consolidation, reorganization, or asset sale with Tenant in which the surviving entity: (i) acquires substantially all of the assets of Tenant as a going concern; (ii) assumed, or is deemed by law to be liable for, all of the liabilities of Tenant; and (iii) has after such merger, consolidation, reorganization, or asset sale a net worth not less than Tenant’s net worth as of the date of this Lease; or (b) any entity which is an affiliate of, controls, is controlled by or is under common ownership with Tenant.
|6.||Counterparts. This Amendment may be executed in counterparts, each of which, when so executed shall be deemed to be an original, and such counterparts together shall constitute and be one and the same instrument. The parties agree that if the signature of any party to this Lease is not an original, but is a digital, mechanical or electronic reproduction (such as, but not limited to, a photocopy, fax, e-mail, PDF, Adobe image, JPEG, telegram, telex or telecopy), then such digital, mechanical or electronic reproduction shall be as enforceable, valid and binding as, and the legal equivalent to, an authentic and traditional ink-on-paper original wet signature penned manually by its signatory.|
|7.||Initials Not Required. Neither party shall be required to initial any page of the Amendment in order for the Amendment to be effective. The Amendment shall be effective if both parties execute the Amendment on the signature page and deliver the Amendment, together with an executed copy of this Amendment, to the other party.|
|8.||Waiver of Jury Trial Right. IN GRAFTON PARTNERS L.P. v. SUPERIOR COURT, 36 CAL.4TH 944 (2005), THE CALIFORNIA SUPREME COURT RULED THAT CONTRACTUAL, PRE-DISPUTE JURY TRIAL WAIVERS ARE UNENFORCEABLE. THE PARTIES, HOWEVER, ANTICIPATE THAT THE CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE WILL ENACT LEGISLATION TO PERMIT SUCH WAIVERS IN CERTAIN CASES. IN ANTICIPATION OF SUCH LEGISLATION, THE PARTIES EACH WAIVE, AS OF THE EFFECTIVE DATE OF SUCH LEGISLATION AND TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS, ANY RIGHT TO A TRIAL BY JURY IN ANY ACTION, PROCEEDING OR COUNTERCLAIM TO ENFORCE OR DEFEND ANY RIGHTS UNDER THIS LEASE AND AGREE THAT ANY SUCH ACTION OR PROCEEDING SHALL BE TRIED BEFORE A COURT AND NOT BEFORE A JURY.|
|9.||Office of foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”) Representations. Landlord and Tenant (each, a “Representing Party”) each represents and warrants to the other: (i) that neither the Representing Party nor any person or entity that directly owns a 10% or greater equity interest in it nor any of its officers, directors or managing members is a person or entity (each, a “Prohibited Person”) with whom U.S. persons or entities are restricted from doing business under regulations of the Office of Foreign Asset Control (“OFAC”) of the Department of the Treasury (including those named on OFAC’s Specially Designated and Blocked Persons List) or under any statute, executive order (including Executive Order 13224 (the “Executive Order”) signed on September 24, 2001 and entitled “Blocking Property and Prohibiting Transactions with Persons Who Commit, Threaten to Commit, or Support Terrorism), or other governmental action, (ii) that the Representing Party’s activities do not violate the International Money Laundering Abatement and Financial Anti-Terrorism Act of 2001 or the regulations or orders promulgated thereunder (as amended from time to time, the “Anti-Money Laundering Act”), and (iii) that throughout the term of this Lease the Representing Party shall comply with the Executive Order and with the Anti-Money Laundering Act.|
|10.||Patriot Act. In compliance with Executive Order 13224 and the USA Patriot Act of 2001, Tenant affirmatively represents and warrants that (a) neither Tenant nor any officer, director, or principal of Tenant has committed or supported terrorist acts; or (b) neither Tenant nor any officer, director, or principal of Tenant is identified on the list of Specially Designated Nations and Blocked Persons generated by the Office of Foreign Assets Control.|
|11.||Except as amended hereby, the terms and conditions of the Lease plus First and Second Amendments are ratified and confirmed. All defined terms used in the Lease and First and Second Amendments have the same meaning when used in this Third Amendment. Each party executing this lease warrants that all necessary entity authority has been obtained, and that the party executing this lease has been duly authorized.|
