C.S. 8365(b) or any superseding provision of law, sufficient in the circumstances to bar indemnification against Liabilities arising from the conduct. 

(b) If an Indemnified Representative is entitled to indemnification in respect of a portion, but not all, of any Liabilities to which such person may be subject, the Association shall indemnify such Indemnified Representative to the maximum extent for such portion of the Liabilities.
