MAXIMILIANO SANCHO, vs. SEVERIANO LIZARRAGA
G.R.No. L-33580 February 6, 1931
Subject: BusOrg 1
FACTS:
The plaintiff brought an action for the rescission of the partnership contract
between himself and the defendant and the reimbursement of his investment
worth 50,000php with interest at 12 per cent per annum form October 15, 1920,
with costs, and any other just and equitable remedy against said defendant. The
defendant denies generally and specifically all the allegations of the complaint and
asked for the dissolution of the partnership, and the payment to him as its
manager and administrator P500 monthly from October 15, 1920 until the final
dissolution with interest.
The CFI found that the defendant had not contributed all the capital he had bound
himself to invest hence it demanded that the defendant liquidate the partnership,
declared it dissolved on account of the expiration of the period for which it was
constituted, and ordered the defendant, as managing partner, to proceed without
delay to liquidate it, submitting to the court the result of the liquidation together
with the accounts and vouchers within the period of thirty days from receipt of
notice of said judgment. The plaintiff appealed from said decision praying for the
rescission of the partnership contract between him and the defendant in
accordance with Art. 1124.
ISSUE:
WON plaintiff acquired the right to demand rescission of the partnership contract
according to article 1124 of the Civil Code.
HELD:
The SC ruled that owing to the defendant’s failure to pay to the partnership the
whole amount which he bound himself to pay, he became indebted to the
partnership for the remainder, with interest and any damages occasioned thereby,
but the plaintiff did not thereby acquire the right to demand rescission of the
partnership contract according to article 1124 of the Code. Article 1124 cannot be
applied to the case in question, because it refers to the resolution of obligations in
general, whereas articles 1681 and 1682 specifically refer to the contract of
partnership in particular. And it is a well known principle that special provisions
prevail over general provisions. Hence, SC dismissed the appeal left the decision
appealed from in full force.
