In general, as a member of an LLC with an operating agreement, your rights are completely defined by that operating agreement. So, in this case, where there is a dispute amongst the member, your main recourse will be suing the other members for breach of contract
. However, in order to determine what exactly they have done wrong, we need to look at the contract to determine if they have actually broken any of their duties.
If you were to provide the work under the arrangement and you stop the work because you don't like the deal, then you could actually become liable for breach of contract to the other members. Your only recourse at that point would be to continue work and seek a buy out by the other members. However, you probably can't simply stop working.
My understanding of your issues here are that you had originally agreed to a 50 percent stake, but the documents which you signed provided that you only had a 33 percent stake, given that the other partner was going to come in on the deal. Youre going to be stuck with that share because you signed the documents. So, since you are not happy, you will likely need to ask the other members to buy you out and follow the buy out guidelines under the contract, or buy out the member who started screaming at you.
In regard to the fact that you husband gave up his career, this really is a situation where he should have read what he was signing to make sure that he was making the right decision. Most contracts like this are written so that you are not able to bring in any evidence of what you "thought" the deal was, the deal is only as it is stated on the actual agreement.
I'll wait for your document to come through. If you can't get it scanned and emailed until tomorrow, that's not a problem. I'll get back to you when I receive and review the documents.
