30-24-409. STANDARDS OF CONDUCT FOR GENERAL PARTNERS. (a) A general partner owes to the limited partnership and, subject to section 30-24-901, Idaho Code, the other partners the duties of loyalty and care stated in subsections (b) and (c) of this section.
(b) The fiduciary duty of loyalty of a general partner includes the duties:
(1) To account to the limited partnership and hold as trustee for it any property, profit or benefit derived by the general partner:
(A) In the conduct or winding up of the partnership’s activities and affairs;
(B) A use by the general partner of the partnership’s property; or
(C) From the appropriation of a partnership opportunity;
(2) To refrain from dealing with the partnership in the conduct or winding up of the partnership’s activities and affairs as or on behalf of a person having an interest adverse to the partnership; and
(3) To refrain from competing with the partnership in the conduct or winding up of the partnership’s activities and affairs.
(c) The duty of care of a general partner in the conduct or winding up of the limited partnership’s activities and affairs is to refrain from engaging in grossly negligent or reckless conduct, willful or intentional misconduct, or knowing violation of law.
(d) A general partner shall discharge the duties and obligations under this act or under the partnership agreement and exercise any rights consistently with the contractual obligation of good faith and fair dealing.
(e) A general partner does not violate a duty or obligation under this chapter or under the partnership agreement solely because the general partner’s conduct furthers the general partner’s own interest.
(f) All the partners of a limited partnership may authorize or ratify, after full disclosure of all material facts, a specific act or transaction by a general partner that otherwise would violate the duty of loyalty.
(g) It is a defense to a claim under subsection (b)(2) of this section and any comparable claim in equity or at common law that the transaction was fair to the limited partnership.
(h) If, as permitted by subsection (f) of this section or the partnership agreement, a general partner enters into a transaction with the limited partnership that otherwise would be prohibited by subsection (b)(2) of this section, the general partner’s rights and obligations arising from the transaction are the same as those of a person that is not a general partner.
