Annotations

  • Under subsection (1) of this section, the 1998 Uniform Partnership Act creates separate paths through which a dissociated partner can recover partnership interests—dissolution with winding up of partnership business or mandatory buyout. Shoemaker v. Shoemaker, 275 Neb. 112, 745 N.W.2d 299 (2008).

  • When a partnership agreement mandates a buyout of a withdrawing partner's interest but fails to specify a remedy for the partnership's failure to pay, or to timely pay, the buyout price, the default rules for mandatory buyouts apply. Shoemaker v. Shoemaker, 275 Neb. 112, 745 N.W.2d 299 (2008).
