The State of California has not had a policy of going after ther owners of LLCs personally for the LLC's failure to pay the minimum franchise tax. There was one exception, and that was a case in which the LLC owners took assets out that might have been otherwise used to pay the franchise tax. So, no, that would not prevent you from starting a new LLC in California.
