Highlight

An instrument payable to multiple payees non-alternatively may only be negotiated, discharged, or enforced by all of them.
Payment of a check by a payor bank to one joint payee over the forged endorsement of another payee does not discharge the drawer's obligation on the instrument, and the payee has an action against the drawer on the instrument.
A check containing a forged endorsement is not "properly payable" under N.D.C.C. 41-04-32(1), and the drawer has a right to reimbursement of the amount of the check to its account if its bank accepts and pays the check.
