Virginia – SB 779 (Chapter 722), effective July 1, amends the Limited Liability Act
April 19, 2013
Senate Bill 779 (Chapter 722) approved by the governor April 3 and effective July 1 amends the Limited Liability Company Act to provide that an assignment of an interest in a limited liability company does not entitle the assignee to participate in the management and affairs of the limited liability company or to become or to exercise any rights of a member, except as provided in subsection A of § 13.1-1040 of the LLC Act. The measure overturns the Virginia Supreme Court’s finding in Ott v. Monroe that current law precludes such rights being transferred to an assignee.
