Suppose there is a partnership with five members. On Monday, someone commits a tort on behalf of the partnership (e.g. assaults a customer). On Tuesday, one of the partners leaves the partnership and is replaced by a new partner. On Wednesday, the victim of Monday's tort wants to sue.
Who do they sue? Is it the people who were partners on Monday, or the people who are now partners on Wednesday?
The jurisdiction is Victoria, Australia but the answer in any common law jurisdiction is of interest.
