  2. Each member or manager held liable under subsection (a) of this Code section for an unlawful distribution is entitled to contribution:
    1. From each other member or manager who could be held liable under subsection (a) of this Code section for the unlawful distribution; and
    2. From each member for the amount the member received knowing that the distribution was made in violation of Code Section 14-11-407.
  3. A proceeding under this Code section is barred unless it is commenced within two years after the date on which the effect of the distribution is measured under Code Section 14-11-407.
