Saint Alphonsus Diversified Care, Inc. v. MRI Associates, LLP
Idaho Supreme Court
224 P.3d 1068 (2009)
Saint Alphonsus Diversified Care, Inc. (St. Alphonsus) (plaintiff) and three other organizations formed a general partnership named MRI Associates, LLP (MRIA) (defendant). Under the written partnership agreement, any partner could withdraw from the partnership at any time if any of four specified conditions or events were present or occurred. St. Alphonsus dissociated from MRIA and then sued MRIA for a determination of the amount it was entitled to receive for its interest in MRIA. MRIA counterclaimed for wrongful dissociation. The district court granted MRIA’s motion for partial summary judgment, finding that St. Alphonsus’s dissociation was wrongful, because it breached an express provision of the partnership agreement. The district court instructed the jury that St. Alphonsus had wrongfully dissociated, and the jury returned a damages verdict in favor of MRIA. St. Alphonsus appealed.
