The partnership firm is already impleaded as an accused so even if accused partner who signed has expired, shall have no effect on the merits of the case and no other partner can be impleaded in his place because none other than him signed it. Either the complaint shall be treated as become infructuous or it holds good to run it. better file recovery suit.
