Court-ordered Indemnification


(a)

(1)

to the enterprise; or

(2)

because the person improperly received a personal benefit, without regard to whether the benefit resulted from an action taken in the person’s official capacity.

(c)

The indemnification ordered by the court under this section is limited to reasonable expenses if the governing person, former governing person, or delegate is found liable:

(1)

to the enterprise; or

(2)
