You will have to file suit against your other partner as he had no right to sell your interest. You could also name the biyer since he failed to do his due diligence of the business. Most of the time these cases settle. You should hire an attomey as you would likely be awarded attorney fees.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
