How petty are they and how much did you mess up? It’s been 10 years - unless you did something really horrible I would hope they’ve moved on. That said - yes some people are really petty, so be careful if you know they’re really petty. If you’re worried about this - I would reach out to that partner, let him know you’re potentially joining and see if they reach back out.
