Court Of Chancey Resolves Status Of Former GP

Posted In LP Agreements

Policemen's Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago, Illinois v. DV Realty Advisors LLC, C.A. 7204-VCN (November 27, 2013)

What is the status of a general partner in a Delaware limited partnership after that GP is removed? As this decision points out, the answer is not clear and it may be just a holder of an economic interest, but not a limited partner. That question can be resolved by a provision in the partnership agreement and that is the better course as it will then help to determine the former GP's buy out rights.
