Mississippi – LLC Liability for Member’s Conduct

MississippiHowarth v. M&H Ventures, LLC, No. 2016-CA-00742, decided 11/2/17.  The Mississippi Supreme Court ruled that an LLC that owned an airplane that crashed while being piloted by its sole member could not be held liable for the pilot/member’s wrongful death.  The state’s comparative negligence statute prevents a plaintiff from recovering for injuries attributable to the injured person and the LLC could only act through its sole member.
