Effective January 1, 2010, Chapter 1779 is repealed and no longer governs partnerships. 2008 HB332.
Creditors of a partnership one of whose members has died must present their claims to the surviving partners, who may require satisfactory vouchers in support thereof and an affidavit of the claimant that the claim is justly due, that no payments have been made thereon, and that to his knowledge there are no counterclaims against it, as in the authentication of claims against the estate of a person deceased. Actions on claims against such partnership, not so authenticated and filed, within one year from the publication of the notice required by section 1779.05 of the Revised Code, shall be barred.
Upon payment by the surviving partners of all valid claims against such partnership filed within one year, and so authenticated, such surviving partners must file an account as provided for filing executors' or administrators' accounts. All laws relating to executors' or administrators' accounts and their settlement apply to the accounts of surviving partners. Such account shall contain a list, duly sworn to, of all creditors whose claims were filed within one year, together with the respective amounts of such claims.
Upon settlement of such account, such surviving partners and their sureties shall be discharged from all liability on the bond required by section 1779.05 of the Revised Code.
