Case summaries

Authority to Retain Counsel
Sumsion v. Bay Harbor Farm, No. 20170066, decided 6/14/18. The Utah Court of Appeals ruled a member owning 45% of an LLC lacked authority to retain counsel for the LLC where the LLC statute required two-thirds consent for any action not in the ordinary course of business. Therefore, the LLC was not the attorney’s client and did not breach a contract by failing to pay him legal fees.
LLC in Bankruptcy
In re Community Translator Network, LLC, Case No. 2:17-cv-00736, decided 2/6/2018. The U.S District Court in Utah ruled that once a bankruptcy court appoints a trustee for a debtor LLC only that trustee can represent the LLC in litigation and the former manager had no authority to appeal on the LLC’s behalf.
