(1) A cooperative shall keep correct and complete books and records of account, and shall keep minutes of the proceedings of its members, board and executive committee. It shall keep at its principal office records of the names and addresses of all members and shareholders. At any reasonable time, any member or shareholder, or the agent or attorney of any member or shareholder, upon written notice stating the purposes thereof, may examine for any proper purpose any books or records pertinent to the purpose specified in the notice and may make extracts therefrom, all in accordance with any reasonable conditions prescribed by the board restricting the disclosure, dissemination or use by any member or shareholder, or any agent or attorney of any member or shareholder, of any information therein contained. The board may deny a request to examine books and records if the board determines that the purpose is not directly related to the business or affairs of the cooperative and is contrary to the best interests of the cooperative.

(2) In any action or proceeding to enforce the rights of members or shareholders provided in this section, the court may award reasonable attorney fees to the prevailing party. [1957 c.716 §31; 1981 c.897 §16; 1995 c.195 §14; 1995 c.618 §39]
