2011 ORS § 65.401¹
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 in the amount it considers proper if it determines:

(1) The director is entitled to mandatory indemnification under ORS 65.394 (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 65.391 (Authority to indemnify) (1) or was adjudged liable as described in ORS 65.391 (Authority to indemnify) (4), whether the liability is based on a judgment, settlement or proposed settlement or otherwise.
