(b)  Actions By or in the Right of the Corporation.  The corporation shall indemnify any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending, or completed action or suit, including all appeals, by or in the right of the corporation to procure a judgment in its favor by reason of the fact that such person is or was a director or officer of the corporation (and the corporation, in the discretion of the Board, may so indemnify a person by reason of the fact that such person is or was an employee or agent of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation in any other capacity for or on behalf of the corporation), to the fullest extent permitted by law, including indemnifying such person against expenses (including attorneys’ fees) actually and reasonably incurred by such person in connection with the defense or settlement of such action or suit if such person acted in good faith and in a manner such person reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, except that no indemnification shall be made in respect of any claim, issue or matter as to which such person shall have been finally adjudged to be liable for negligence or misconduct in the performance of his or her duty to the corporation unless and only to the extent that the court in which such action or suit was brought, or any other court of competent jurisdiction, shall determine upon application that, despite the adjudication of liability but in view of all the circumstances of the case, such person is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for such expenses as such court shall deem proper, Notwithstanding the foregoing, the corporation shall be required to indemnify an officer or director in connection with an action, suit or proceeding initiated by such person only if such action, suit or proceeding was authorized by the Board.
