common name, whether it comprise the names of such persons or not, the associates
may be sued by such common name, the summons in such cases being served on one or
more of the associates; and the judgment in the action shall bind the joint property
of all the associates in the same manner as if all had been named defendants and had
been sued upon their joint liability.
