"Organization" and "Person" Defined
What is an "Organization"?
§ 1(10) “Organization” means a person other than an individual.
Reporter's Comment 10. The definition of “organization” is derived from Uniform Commercial Code § 1 201(b)(25) (2014).
JayNote: The term "person" in § 1(10) is defined in § 1(11) below. The term "organization" has its own definition to accommodate the requirements of the Dark Lords who delve in the arcane nuances of the Uniform Commercial Code.
What is a "Person"?
§ 1(11) “Person” means an individual, estate, partnership, association, trust, business or nonprofit entity, public corporation, government or governmental subdivision, agency, or instrumentality, or other legal or commercial entity.
Reporter's Comment: 11. The definition of “person” is derived from the standard definition of that term used in acts prepared by the Uniform Law Commission as of 2014. Section 11 renders a “protected series” of a “series organization” a “person” for purposes of this Act, even though the “protected series” may not qualify as a “person” under paragraph (11) of this section.
2016 Technical Correction: 11. The definition of “person” is derived from the standard definition of that term used in acts prepared by the Uniform Law Commission as of 2014. Section 11 renders a “protected series” of a “series organization” a “person” for purposes of this Act, even though the “protected series” may not qualify as a “person” under paragraph (11) of this section.
JayNote: Having served on the Drafting Committees for both Uniform Voidable Transactions Act and the (proposed as of this writing) Uniform Limited Liability Company Protected Series Act, nobody really knew what the hell "person" meant or was supposed to mean as applied to Series LLCs, but this sounded good to everybody involved and so it was included gratis. I don't mean this statement wholly tongue-in-cheek. Certainly, it was not anything like a blessing by the UVTA Committee for the hoped-for interpretation of "person" by the ULLCPSA Committee, and thus should be taken with a rather large grain of salt. Long after this definition as applied to Series LLC was adopted by the UVTA Committee, the ULLCPSA Committee itself continued to struggle mightily with the entire concept.
