Question

2. Jamie and Greg are partners in a firm called Copythat, that leases photocopiers to commercial businesses. Their

partnership agreement states that they are prohibited from selling toner to clients other than by arrangement with David’s business, which sells toner. An important client asks Jamie to supply toner, which Jamie provides from a private supplier in India, and does not inform Greg or David. The toner is of poor quality and the firm sues Copythat for damages, arguing that it was in the scope of their business to supply toner. Greg argues that as a partner he is not jointly liable since James acted contrary to their agreement. Discuss the liability of partners to third parties.
