Health & Safety Code Section 221.026
(a)Except as provided by Subsection (c), a development corporation may indemnify a director or officer or a former director or officer for expenses and costs, including attorney’s fees, actually or necessarily incurred by the person in connection with a claim asserted against the person, by action in court or other forum, because of the person’s being or having been a director or officer.
(b)If a development corporation has not fully indemnified a director or officer under Subsection (a), the court in a proceeding in which a claim is asserted against the director or officer, or a court having jurisdiction over an action brought by the director or officer on a claim for indemnity, may assess indemnity against the corporation or its receiver or trustee. The assessment must equal:
(1)the amount that the director or officer paid to satisfy the judgment or compromise the claim, not including any amount paid the corporation; and
(2)to the extent the court considers reasonable and equitable, the expenses and costs, including attorney’s fees, actually and necessarily incurred by the director or officer in connection with the claim.
(c)A development corporation may not provide indemnity in a matter if the director or officer is guilty of negligence or misconduct in relation to the matter. A court may not assess indemnity unless it finds that the director or officer was not guilty of negligence or misconduct in relation to the matter in which indemnity is sought.
