U.S. federal judge treats DAO as general partnership, meaning voters may be liable in lawsuits

In a lawsuit in California, USA against a DAO the judge allowed members of the DAO to be included as defendants. The judge seems to consider the DAO to be a general partnership for legal purposes. Does this mean DAOs need to be organized as limited liability corporations or some such? See the following for an article about the lawsuit:

I don’t understand why people think it’s a good idea to create a new governance when the governance already exists. People need to learn that voluntary organisations, cooperatives, trusts, BCORPS, etc etc can be used instead of trying to create an entire new legal term “DAO” which doesn’t exist.
