(a) Any stockholder of a close corporation may petition a court of equity for dissolution of the corporation on the grounds set forth in § 3-413 of this article or on the ground that there is such internal dissension among the stockholders of the corporation that the business and affairs of the corporation can no longer be conducted to the advantage of the stockholders generally.

(2) A petition for dissolution under this subsection shall be filed within 60 days after the date of the request or the default, as the case may be.
