§ 79-29-611. Liability for wrongful distribution

Universal Citation: MS Code § 79-29-611 (2020)
  1. A member or manager who votes for or assents to a distribution in violation of the certificate of formation or operating agreement or Section 79-29-609 is personally liable to the limited liability company for the amount of the distribution that exceeds what could have been distributed without violating Section 79-29-609 or the certificate of formation or operating agreement if it is established that the member or manager did not act in compliance with Section 79-29-609. Each member or manager held liable under this subsection (1) is entitled to contribution:
    1. From each other member or manager who could be held liable under this subsection (1) for the unlawful distribution; and
    2. From each member for the amount the member received knowing that the distribution was made in violation of Section 79-29-605, the certificate of formation or the operating agreement.
    1. A member who receives a distribution in violation of Section 79-29-609, and who knew at the time of the distribution that the distribution violated Section 79-29-609, shall be liable to a limited liability company for the amount of the distribution.
    2. A member who receives a distribution in violation of Section 79-29-609, and who did not know at the time of the distribution that the distribution violated Section 79-29-609, shall not be liable for the amount of the distribution.
  2. Subject to subsection (4) of this section, this section shall not affect any obligation or liability of a member under an agreement or other applicable law for the amount of a distribution.
  3. Unless otherwise agreed, a member who either assents to or receives a distribution from a limited liability company shall have no liability under this chapter or other applicable law for the amount of the distribution after the expiration of two (2) years from the date of the distribution unless an action to recover the distribution from the member is commenced before the expiration of the two-year period and an adjudication of liability against the member is made in the action.
