Question: One of your colleagues has been hired

One of your colleagues has been hired by the Todd, Johnson, and Samuels partnership to guide it through the liquidation process. The partnership currently has cash in a bank account that exceeds the amount it owes creditors, and has other assets consisting of equipment, land, and a building. Each partner has a positive balance in their capital account. Your colleague has asked your opinion with respect to two questions: (1) Would it be appropriate to distribute some cash to the partners even before the other assets have been sold and creditors have been paid, and if so, (2) should each partner receive an equal amount of cash?
Write a memorandum to your colleague providing your opinion with regard to questions (1) and (2).
