An LLC does not shield active members from liability in South Carolina Construction Defect ruling


In this case of first impression arising from a general contractor’s liability for construction defects, the Court held that a member of a limited liability company (LLC) can be held personally liable for negligent acts committed while working for the LLC of which he was a member. The Court stated that, based upon the General Assembly’s intent, the Uniform Limited Liability Act does not shield the member from personal liability from his own torts.
