I understand that LLC means a Limited Liability Company--its members are not vicariously liable for the debts or torts or negligence of an agent of the LLC, including another member.
However, an agent or member who actually commits a tort or negligence IS personally liable; that agent or member who actually commits a tort or negligence cannot shift liability to the LLC.
So, if one is not concerned about anonymity, is there any point in forming a single-member LLC that hires no employees?
After all, the single managing member is the individual who performs all actions or duties or services for the LLC, so if he commits a tort or an act of negligence, then that individual is going to be personally liable for whatever he does--he or she cannot protect his personal assets from liability.
