JUDICIAL DECISIONS

Petition in action against members of partnership dissolved by discharge in bankruptcy was demurrable (subject to motion to dismiss) when new promise was made by one partner only. Meinhard, Schaul & Co. v. Folsom Bros., 3 Ga. App. 251, 59 S.E. 830 (1907).

Amendment setting forth a new promise by an individual partner, in an action against a partnership, is not germane to original action. Ford v. Clark, 72 Ga. 760 (1884).
