Case Synopsis

The Court determined five issues: (1) Whether the partnership-by-estoppel statute may impose liability when there is representation of a joint venture rather than a partnership; (2) Whether consent may be manifested expressly or may be fairly implied from conduct; (3) Whether the phrase “given credit” is limited to the extension of financial credit; (4) Whether the reliance on the representation of a partnership or joint venture must be reasonable; and (5) Whether the statute may impose liability in claims that do not sound in contract.
