  4.  If the corporation refuses to allow a member, a member's agent or a member's attorney to inspect the list of members before or at the meeting, the circuit court of the county where a corporation's principal office, or, if none in this state, its registered office, is located, on application of the member, may summarily order the inspection and may postpone the meeting for which the list was prepared until the inspection is complete, and may order the corporation to pay the member's costs, including reasonable counsel fees, incurred to obtain the order.

  5.  Unless a written demand to inspect a membership list has been made under subsection 2 of this section prior to the membership meeting and a corporation improperly refuses to comply with the demand, refusal or failure to comply with this section does not affect the validity of action taken at the meeting.
