(A) The member withdraws by express will;
(B) The member is expelled by judicial determination under section 428-601(5);
(C) The member is dissociated by becoming a debtor in bankruptcy; or
(D) In the case of a member who is not an individual, trust other than a business trust, or estate, the member is expelled or otherwise dissociated because it wilfully dissolved or terminated its existence.

(d) If a limited liability company does not dissolve and wind up its business as a result of a member's wrongful dissociation under subsection (b), damages sustained by the company for the wrongful dissociation shall be offset against distributions otherwise due the member after the dissociation.
