     35-8-304. Liability of members, managers, and series of members to third parties. (1) Except as provided in 39-51-1105 and subsection (3) of this section, a person who is a member or manager, or both, of a limited liability company is not liable, solely by reason of being a member or manager, or both, under a judgment, decree or order of a court, or in any other manner, for a debt, obligation, or liability of the limited liability company, whether arising in contract, tort, or otherwise or for the acts or omissions of any other member, manager, agent, or employee of the limited liability company.
     (2) The failure of a limited liability company to observe the usual company formalities or requirements relating to the exercise of its company powers or management of its business is not a ground for imposing personal liability on the members or managers of the limited liability company.
     (3) All or specified members of a limited liability company are liable in their capacity as members for all or specified debts, obligations, or liabilities of the company if:
     (a) a provision to that effect is contained in the articles of organization; and
     (b) a member named as liable has consented in writing to the adoption of the provision or to be bound by the provision.
     (4) The debts, liabilities, obligations, and expenses incurred, contracted for, or otherwise existing with respect to a particular series of members are enforceable against the assets of that series of members only and not against the assets of the company generally or any other series of members if:
     (a) separate and distinct records are maintained for the series of members and the assets associated with the series of members are held, directly or indirectly, including through a nominee or otherwise, and accounted for separately from the other assets of the company and any other series of members; and
     (b) unless otherwise provided in the articles of organization or operating agreement, debts, liabilities, obligations, and expenses incurred, contracted for, or otherwise existing with respect to the company generally or another series of members are not enforceable against the assets of the series of members.
