Delaware Court Upholds Transfer of Voting Interests to an Existing LLC Member


The Delaware Court of Chancery has upheld the assignment of a Delaware limited liability company membership interest, including the voting rights associated with that interest, to an existing member of the LLC. Omniglow LLC had three members: (i) plaintiff Achaian, Inc., which owned 20% of Omniglow; (ii) defendant Leemon Family LLC, which owned 50% of Omniglow; and (iii) Randye M. Holland, who had owned a 30% membership interest in Omniglow. In January 2010, Holland purported to transfer and assign its entire 30% interest to Achaian. Achaian then filed suit seeking an order of dissolution of Omniglow, asserting that it and Leemon were deadlocked with respect to the management of the company. Leemon opposed the motion, arguing, among other things, that Holland could not assign his voting rights in the LLC without Leemon’s consent.
