Section 16.09. Nonliability and Indemnification. Except as provided herein, no right, power, or responsibility conferred on the Board or the Architectural Committee by this Declaration, the Articles or the By-Laws shall be construed as a duty, obligation or disability charged upon the Board, the Committee, any member of the Board or of the Committee, or any other officer, employee or agent of the Association. No such Person shall be liable to any party (other than the Association or a party claiming in the name of the Association) for injuries or damage resulting from such Person’s acts or omissions within what such Person reasonably believed to be the scope of his Association duties (*Official Acts*), except to the extent that such injuries or damage result from such Person's willful or malicious misconduct. No such Person shall be liable to the Association (or to any party claiming in the name of the Association) for injuries or damage resulting from such Person's Official Acts, except to the extent that such injuries or damage result from such Person's negligence or willful or malicious misconduct.

The Association shall pay all expenses incurred by, and satisfy any judgment or fine levied against, any Person as a result of any action or threatened action against such Person to impose liability on such Person for his Official Acts, provided that:

  1. The Board determines that such Person acted in good faith and in a manner such Person reasonably believed to be in the best interests of the Association;
  2. In the case of a criminal proceeding, the Board determines that such Person had no reasonable cause to believe his conduct was unlawful; and

Any determination of the Board required under this Section 16.09 must be approved by a majority vote of a quorum consisting of Directors who are not parties to the action or threatened action giving rise to the indemnification. If the Board fails or refuses to mate any such determination, such determination may be made by the vote of a majority of a quorum of the Members of the Association voting at a meeting of the Association called for such purpose, provided that the Person to be indemnified shall not be entitled to vote.

Payments made hereunder shall include amounts paid and expenses incurred in settling any such action or threatened action. This Section 16.09 shall be construed to authorize payments and indemnification to the fullest extent now or hereafter permitted by applicable law.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, no employee, officer, or director of Grantor, serving the Association as an appointee of Grantor, shall be granted indemnification hereunder.

The entitlement to indemnification hereunder shall inure to the benefit of the estate, executor, administrator, heirs, legatees, or devisees of any Person entitled to such indemnification.
