2011 California Code
TITLE 2.5. LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANIES [17000 - 17656]
CHAPTER 7. Interest in Limited Liability Company: Assignment of Interests
(a) Except as otherwise provided in the articles of organization or the operating agreement, an assignee of an interest in a limited liability company may become a member only if a majority in interest of the other members vote in favor of the assignee s admission to the limited liability company as a member.
(b) An assignee who has become a member has, to the extent assigned, the rights and powers, and is subject to the restrictions and liabilities, of a member under the articles of organization, any operating agreement, and this title. An assignee who becomes a member also is liable for the obligations of the assignor to make contributions as provided in Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 17200), and to return any unlawful distributions made to the assignee under Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 17250) or Chapter 8 (commencing with Section 17350). However, the assignee is not obligated for liabilities unknown to the assignee at the time the assignee became a member and that could not be ascertained from the articles of organization or operating agreement.
(c) Whether or not an assignee of a membership interest becomes a member, the assignor is not released from the assignor s liability to the limited liability company under Chapter 5 (commencing with Section 17200) and Chapter 6 (commencing with Section 17250).
(Amended by Stats. 1996, Ch. 57, Sec. 21. Effective June 6, 1996.)
