35-18-330. Court-ordered indemnification. Unless a cooperative's articles of incorporation provide otherwise, a trustee or officer of the cooperative who is a party to a proceeding may apply for indemnification to the court conducting the proceeding or to another court of competent jurisdiction. On receipt of an application, the court, after giving any notice that the court considers necessary, may order indemnification if it determines that the trustee or officer:
(1) is entitled to mandatory indemnification under 35-18-329, in which case the court shall also order the cooperative to pay the trustee's reasonable expenses incurred in obtaining court-ordered indemnification; or
(2) is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnification in view of all the relevant circumstances. If the trustee or officer was adjudged liable as described in 35-18-328(3), the trustee's or officer's indemnification is limited to reasonable expenses incurred.
