B. At the time the other party enters into the transaction:
(1) Less than 2 years has passed since the dissociation; and
(2) The other party does not have notice of the dissociation and reasonably believes that the person is a general partner. [2005, c. 543, Pt. C, §2 (NEW).]
[ 2005, c. 543, Pt. C, §2 (NEW) .]
2. Liability of dissociated general partner.  If a limited partnership is bound under subsection 1, the person dissociated as a general partner that caused the limited partnership to be bound is liable:
A. To the limited partnership for any damage caused to the limited partnership arising from the obligation incurred under subsection 1; and [2005, c. 543, Pt. C, §2 (NEW).]
B. If a general partner or another person dissociated as a general partner is liable for the obligation, to the general partner or other person for any damage caused to the general partner or other person arising from the liability. [2005, c. 543, Pt. C, §2 (NEW).]
