Court of Chancery Upholds Right of "Beneficial" Member to Sue in LLC Case

Posted In LLC Agreements

Mickman v. American International Processing LLC, C.A. No. 3869-VCP (Del. Ch. April 1, 2009)

In the case of an LLC, unlike with a Delaware corporation, the statutory definitions of who may seek court relief have not been broadened. Generally, only a member or manager has those rights, and membership is determined by the LLC operating agreement. This decision holds that a plaintiff may prove she is a member entitled to enforce membership rights by extrinsic evidence, such as a tax return listing her as a member.
