Re: business investment liability
It is unfortunate but the SEC may be using the illegal distribution clause in the operating agreement of the LLC against you.
Generally speaking (because I have not read the business docs), an LLC may require the return of distributions that are illegal or for some other predetermined reason. In that instance, the SEC may choose to chase the members for return of their portion of the funds.
I suggest that you contact an attorney that has the experience in handling LLC and SEC matters, if you like we can arrange an opportunity to speak. I wouldn not proceed without representation at this point in time.
