36.Liability for Improper Distributions.

a.Except as otherwise provided in subsection b. of this section, if a member of a member-managed limited liability company or manager of a manager-managed limited liability company consents to a distribution made in violation of section 35 of this act and in consenting to the distribution fails to comply with section 39 of this act, the member or manager is personally liable to the company for the amount of the distribution that exceeds the amount that could have been distributed without the violation of section 35 of this act.

b.To the extent the operating agreement of a member-managed limited liability company expressly relieves a member of the authority and responsibility to consent to distributions and imposes that authority and responsibility on one or more other members, the liability stated in subsection a. of this section applies to the other members and not the member that the operating agreement relieves of authority and responsibility.

c.A person that receives a distribution knowing that the distribution to that person was made in violation of section 35 of this act is personally liable to the limited liability company but only to the extent that the distribution received by the person exceeded the amount that could have been properly paid under section 35 of this act.

d.A person against which an action is commenced because the person is liable under subsection a. of this section may:

(1)implead any other person that is subject to liability under subsection a. of this section and seek to compel contribution from the person; and

(2)implead any person that received a distribution in violation of subsection c. of this section and seek to compel contribution from the person in the amount the person received in violation of subsection c. of this section.

e.An action under this section is barred if not commenced within two years after the distribution.
