B. Except as provided in the partnership agreement, the general partners who have not wrongfully dissolved a limited partnership or, if none, the limited partners, or a person or persons approved by the limited partners, or if there is more than one class of limited partners, then as approved by each such class, by the affirmative vote of limited partners holding more than 50 percent of the then current interests in the profits of the limited partnership owned by all limited partners or by the limited partners in each class, as appropriate, may wind up the limited partnership’s affairs; however, the circuit court of the locality in which the registered office is located, on cause shown, may wind up the limited partnership’s affairs on application of any partner, his legal representative, or assignee, and in connection therewith, may appoint one or more liquidating trustees.
