California Code of Civil Procedure 872.730 is the California partition statute that explains partition as a remedy in partnerships:

To the extent that the court determines that the provisions of this title are a suitable remedy, such provisions may be applied in a proceeding for partnership accounting and dissolution, or in an action for partition of partnership property, where the rights of unsecured creditors of the partnership will not be prejudiced.

California Code of Civil Procedure 872.730

This section is an exception to California Code of Civil Procedure 872.710, which governs the right to partition in co-ownership situations in which the property is held in tenancy in partnership. If the property is held in partnership, this code “codifies prior case law to the effect that partition is an appropriate remedy where the affairs of the partnership are otherwise sufficiently settled and what remains is the division or sale of the property.” [1]Code Civ. Proc., § 872.730; see, e.g., Hughes v. Devlin, 23 Cal. 501 (1863); Logoluso v. Logoluso, 233 Cal.App.2d 523, 43 Cal.Rptr. 678 (1965). jQuery(‘#footnote_plugin_tooltip_17718_2_1’).tooltip({ tip: ‘#footnote_plugin_tooltip_text_17718_2_1’, tipClass: ‘footnote_tooltip’, effect: ‘fade’, predelay: 0, fadeInSpeed: 200, delay: 400, fadeOutSpeed: 200, position: ‘top center’, relative: true, offset: [-7, 0], });
