Hurst v Bennett and Others In Re A Debtor (No 302 of 1997): CA 16 Feb 2001

A former partner in a firm could not set off sums due to him from the former partnership, against sums expended by remaining partners in acting to protect partnership property, and claimed from him. There was insufficient mutuality to enforce the set off. The one claim was by partners but as trustees, and the other was a claim directly under the partnership.
