(2) If a corporation does not within a reasonable time allow a member to inspect and copy any other record, the member who complies with ORS 65.774 (2) and (3) may apply to the circuit court in the county where the corporationís principal office, or, if none in this state, its registered office, is located for an order to permit inspection and copying of the records demanded.
(3) The court may award reasonable attorney fees to the prevailing party in an action under this section.
