Walkovszky v. Carlton
Citation:223 N.E.2d 6 (1966)
The complaint alleges that the plaintiff was severely injured four years ago in New York City when he was run down by a taxicab owned by the defendant Seon Cab Corporation and negligently operated at the time by the defendant Marchese. The individual defendant, Carlton, is claimed to be a stockholder of 10 corporations, including Seon. These corporations are alleged to be operated as a single entity, unit and enterprise. The plaintiff asserts that he is also entitled to hold their stockholders personally liable for the damages sought because the multiple corporate structure constitutes an unlawful attempt to defraud members of the general public who might be injured by the cabs.
