company or of a member's transferee, a court having jurisdiction may charge the distributional
interest of the judgment debtor to satisfy the judgment.

distributional interest or a member's assignee may use to satisfy a judgment out of the judgment
debtor's interest in a limited liability company. No other remedy, including foreclosure on the
