(b) In any proceeding commenced under this section, a director has all of the defenses ordinarily available to a director.
(2) A director held liable under Subsection (1) for an unlawful distribution is entitled to contribution:

(b) from each member who accepted the distribution knowing the distribution was made in violation of Section 16-6a-1301 or the articles of incorporation.
(3) The amount of the contribution from each member under Subsection (2)(b) is the amount of the distribution to the member multiplied by the percentage of the amount of distribution to all members that exceeded what could have been distributed to members without violating Section 16-6a-1301 or the articles of incorporation.
