The termination of any action, suit, or proceeding by judgment, order, settlement, conviction, or upon a plea of nolo contendere or its equivalent, does not, of itself, create a presumption that the person did not act in good faith and in a manner which he or she reasonably believed to be or not opposed to the best interests of the Club or its Members, and with respect to a criminal action or proceeding, had reasonable cause to believe that his or her conduct was unlawful.
