1779.09 Partner may compromise with firm creditor.

Effective January 1, 2010, Chapter 1779 is repealed and no longer governs partnerships. 2008 HB332.

When a partnership is dissolved, by mutual consent or otherwise, any partner may make a separate composition or compromise with any creditor of the partnership. Such composition or compromise shall be a full and effectual discharge to the debtor who makes it, but to him only, from all liability to the creditor with whom it is made, according to its terms.

Every partner who makes such a composition or compromise may take from the creditor with whom he makes it a note or memorandum, in writing, exonerating him from all individual liability incurred by reason of his connection with the partnership, which note or memorandum may be given in evidence by such partner in bar of such creditor's right of recovery against him. If such liability is by judgment in a court of record in this state, then, on a production to and filing with the clerk thereof, of the note or memorandum, the clerk shall discharge such judgment of record as far as the compromising partner is concerned.
