2010 Maryland Code
Subtitle 8 - Derivative Actions
Section 801 - Right of action.

§ 4A-801. Right of action.

(a)  Scope of right.- A member may bring a derivative action to enforce a right of a limited liability company to recover a judgment in its favor to the same extent that a stockholder may bring an action for a derivative suit under the corporation law of Maryland. 

(b)  Conditions under which action may be brought.- An action under this subtitle may be brought if members with authority to bring the action have refused to bring the action or if an effort to cause those members to bring the action is not likely to succeed. 

(c)  Impermissible plaintiffs.- If it appears that the plaintiff does not fairly and adequately represent the interests of the members in enforcing the right of the limited liability company, the derivative action may not be maintained.
