Courts - Did SCOTUS allow corporations to have it both ways?

A quote from an opinion piece by E.J. Dionne in the Washington Post:

But above all, there is the very troubling desire of the court’s conservatives — made manifest in its Citizens United decision four years ago — to let individuals use the corporate form to escape “personal responsibility for the entity’s obligations,” as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg put it in her dissent, but then exercise the rights of individuals when doing so is convenient. They want corporations to have it both ways. “One might ask,” Ginsburg wrote, “why the separation should hold only when it serves the interest of those who control the corporation.”
