The rules do not require partners to be players. Previous attempts
to create partnerships with non-player members were unsuccessful for
other reasons, e.g. attempting to be governed simultaneously by a
legal system incompatible with the rules of Agora.
The rules are silent as to whether deregistration implies withdrawal
from binding agreements related to Agora. For the record:
* I intended to remain governed by the AFO agreement, and
privately informed the other partners that my primary reason
for forming it was to give the courts such a test case.
* My actions before and after deregistration (handing the AFO the
Assessorship and a pile of VLOP, and continuing to attempt to
control it) strongly imply (but did not explicitly state) such
Judge Taral's Arguments:
I judge TRUE. Partnerships can have non-player members and nothing in
the rules causes a member to cease being so due to deregistration.
