6. Teresa, Peter, and Walker were partners under a written agreement made in January that the partnership should continue for ten years. During the same year, Walker, being indebted to Smith, sold and conveyed his interestin the partnership to Smith.

8. Cutler worked as a bartender for Bowen until they orallyagreed that Bowen would have the authority and responsibility for the entire active management and operation of the tavern business known as the Havana Club. Each was to receive $300 per week plus half of the net profits. The business continued under this arrangement for four years until the building was taken over by the Salt Lake City Redevelopment Agency. The agency paid $30,000 to Bowen as compensation for disruption. The business, however, was terminated after Bowen and Cutler failed to find a new suitable location. Cutler, alleging a partnership with Bowen, then brought this action against him to recover one-half of the $30,000. Bowen contends that he is entitled to the entire $30,000 because he was the sole owner of the business and that Cutler was merely his employee. Cutler argues that although Bowen owned the physical assets of the business, she, as a partner in the business, is entitled to one-half of the compensation that was paid for the business’s goodwill and going concern value. Who is correct? Explain.
