2011 ORS § 60.401¹
Court-ordered indemnification

Unless the corporations articles of incorporation provide otherwise, a director of the corporation 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 the court considers necessary may order indemnification if it determines:

(1) The director is entitled to mandatory indemnification under ORS 60.394 (Mandatory indemnification), in which case the court shall also order the corporation to pay the directors reasonable expenses incurred to obtain court-ordered indemnification; or

(2) The director is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnification in view of all the relevant circumstances, whether or not the director met the standard of conduct set forth in ORS 60.391 (Authority to indemnify directors) or was adjudged liable as described in ORS 60.391 (Authority to indemnify directors) (4), whether the liability is based on a judgment, settlement or proposed settlement or otherwise.
