Sole managing member's personal liability.

- In a action seeking to hold a sole managing member of an LLC personally liable for a debt of an LLC, insufficient evidence was presented that the manager executed a note individually guarantying payment for the services provided by a payroll servicer, as: (1) conclusive proof was presented that the LLC had met all conditions of formation at the time the contract was entered into; and (2) the agreement was specifically entered into between the servicer and the LLC, and the manager's signature appeared nowhere on the agreement.
