§29-12A-12. Recovery of payments from employees.
A political subdivision has the right to recover from an
employee for any claim or action under this article, or any other
claim or action, any payments made by it for any judgment or
settlement, or portion thereof, and costs or fees by or on behalf
of an employee's defense if it is shown that the conduct or the
employee which gave rise to the claim or action was outside the
scope of his employment or if the employee fails to cooperate in
good faith in the defense of the claim or action. A judgment or
settlement in an action or claim under this article constitutes a
complete bar to any action by a claimant against an employee
whose conduct gave rise to the claim resulting in such judgment
