Iceland Telecom, Ltd. v. Information Systems & Networks Corp.
Citation:268 F. Supp. 2d 585 (D. Md. 2003)
ISNGC, a telecommunications company, was founded by Malkani. ISN was founded in 1980 and its CEO and sole owner is Malkani’s mother, Roma Malkani. Arvin Malkani was the sole owner, sole stockholder, CEO, and president of ISNGC. ISNGC never held a stockholder meeting, nor did it ever hold a meeting of corporate directors. Roma Malkani testified that she did not know that she was a member of the board. All indications point to the fact that ISNGC was a subsidiary of ISN. ISN gave one million dollars tin start-up funds to ISNGC. ISNGC’s letterhead stated that ISNGC was an ISN Company. A description of business form stated that ISN was its parent copmany. Also, Roma Malkani and ISN were directly involved in the day-to-day operations of ISNGC. ISN and ISNGC shared the same office space. ISNGC used ISN’s overhead, including phone numbers and office furniture. In early 1999, plaintiffs and ISNGC entered into negotiations, carried out by Malkani and Iceland Telecom. The communications between the parties indicate that plaintiff thought it was dealing with ISN.
