I think what I'm looking to see is there, sort of. That's what the 
double negative means

It comes across to me as rather weaker than the European idea of limited 
liability though.

What it seems to be saying is, that if you are a member of an 
association, you are not liable unless the Claimant ("Plaintiff" in 
archaic) can show some additional reason why you should be.

English (for example) associations and corporations explicitly state 
"the liability of the Members is Limited". No ifs/buts.

So we are somewhere towards where I'd expect to be, but I don't see why 
you'd prefer to choose the tin version over the gold one.
