Partnership for venue purposes

Postby Cemoore4 » Tue May 03, 2011 10:06 pm

On my practice exam, I assumed that a partnership for venue was treated the same as a partnership for diversity. My prof's comment is "How is a partnership treated for purposes of venue?"

I am guessing this means that partnerships are treated like corporations for venue? If so, where is this located because 1391 says nothing about partnerships.

This is very general, but, the proper venue for a partnership is generally domicile or residence. However a partnership may not truly have a residence or domicile so that the only meaningful test for venue with respect to a partnership is the district in which it has its principal place of business or its principal assets. For a partnership which has ceased functioning, venue may be proper in the district where the wind-down effort is occurring.

Any place in which a partner resides.

EDIT: This might be for personal jdx & not venue...sorry CivPro was last semester.
