     35-2-727. Unknown claims against dissolved corporations. (1) The dissolution of a corporation, including by the expiration of its term, does not take away or impair any remedy available to or against the corporation or its officers, directors, or members for any claim or right, whether or not the claim or right existed or accrued prior to the dissolution. Any action or proceeding by or against the corporation referred to in this subsection may be prosecuted or defended by the corporation in its corporate name. Members, directors, and officers may take corporate or other action as is appropriate to protect a remedy, right, or claim.
     (2) A claim may be enforced under 35-2-726 or this section:
     (a) against the dissolved corporation to the extent of its undistributed assets; or
     (b) if the assets have been distributed in liquidation, against a member of the dissolved corporation to the extent of the member's pro rata share of the claim or the corporate assets distributed to the member in liquidation, whichever is less. However, a member's total liability for all claims under this section may not exceed the total amount of assets distributed to the member.
     (3) Subsections (1) and (2) apply to a foreign corporation transacting business in this state, and its members, for any claims otherwise arising or accruing under Montana law.
