The period covered by this Survey saw a continuation of the trend
by New York courts to treat limited liability companies (LLC) similarly
to corporations, except in matters of dissolution when the owners are
deadlocked. Overall, there was an abundance of helpful court decisions.
Many of the decisions are discussed in a short form that focuses on their
holdings. Other cases seemed to be of greater legal interest and were
selected by the authors for more extended discussion.
