PEEPLES v. HOLLAND et al.
46579.
BELL, Chief Judge.
Action for damages. Thomas Superior Court. Before Judge Calhoun.
The jury returned a verdict in favor of plaintiff in a tort action against two alleged partners. The only issue on appeal is the sufficiency of the evidence to support the jury's verdict that there was in fact a partnership. The appellant, one of the defendants, contends that the evidence will not sanction a finding that he was engaged in a partnership with his codefendant at the time of the incident which gave rise to this litigation. Irrespective of whether the evidence supports a finding that appellant was an actual partner in the business, the evidence amply justified a finding that he was an ostensible partner under Code 75-104. There was no error in the judgment overruling the motion for judgment n.o.v. and the motion for new trial.
