Ind. Decisions - Court of Appeals issues 1 today (and 6 NFP)

For publication opinions today (1):

In CBR Event Decorators, Inc., Gregory Rankin, Robert Cochrane and John Bales v. Todd M. Gates , a 14-page opinion, Judge Vaidik writes:

Robert Cochrane, John Bales, and Gregory Rankin, shareholders of CBR Event Decorators, Inc., appeal the trial court’s judgment entered against CBR in favor of Todd M. Gates. The shareholders challenge the trial court’s decision to pierce the corporate veil and hold them personally liable for the judgment against CBR. We conclude that in order to pierce the corporate veil there must be a causal connection between misuse of the corporate form and fraud or injustice. Because there is no such causal connection here, we reverse in part and affirm in part.
