Judge Terrence Nealon of Lackawanna County Addresses Corporate Law Issues

I secured a copy of an Opinion issued earlier this week by Lackawanna County Judge Terrence R. Nealon in the case of Sparrow v. Pace/CM, Inc., No. 10 - Civil - 5086 (Lacka. Co., Feb. 7, 2011, Nealon, J.), in which the court addressed, in great detail, the issues and the law surrounding piercing the corporate veil, the alter ego theory, the Contractor & Subcontractor Payment Act, and unjust enrichment.

Also of note is that, on pages 17-24 of the Opinion, Judge Nealon reviews the tort issues surrounding his dismissal of a claim for tortious interference with existing and prospective business relations based upon the "gist of the action" doctrine and the consequent dismissal of the punitive damages claim following the dismissal of the plaintiff's only tort claim.

Anyone desiring a copy of this Opinion by Judge Nealon may contact me at dancummins@comcast.net.
