9.1 Liability and Indemnification.
Any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative (including any action by or in the right of the corporation) by reason of the fact that he is or was serving as an officer or director of the corporation or is or was serving at the request of the corporation as a director or officer of another corporation, partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise, shall be indemnified by the corporation against expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines, and amounts paid in settlement actually and reasonably incurred by him in connection with such action, suit or proceeding if he acted in good faith for a purpose that he reasonably believed to be in the best interest of the corporation, and, in criminal actions or proceedings, he had no reasonable cause to believe that his conduct was unlawful, to the maximum extent permitted by and in the manner provided by the Tennessee Nonprofit Corporation Act. The corporation shall indemnify a director who was wholly successful, on the merits or otherwise, in the defense of any proceeding to which he was a party because he is or was a director of the corporation against reasonable expenses incurred by him in connection with the proceeding.
