    First, the expense of defending the lawsuits will
    not be paid by insurance. They will be paid by the
    corporation. Second, Doc, the other officers, and the board

    that their expenses and damages will be paid by the

    In order to prove fraud in a civil case,
    the case would have to proceed to trial (unlikely)
    and would have to meet the heavy burden of proof for
    fraud. It is very unlikely that the corporation would

    trial would leave the issue of fraud undecided, and Doc
    would be indemnified.

    The Pac Life deal will
    also help get Doc off the hook, though I would hope
    that Pac Life will take charge enough to make sure
