Company - Corporate personality - Lifting corporate veil - Claimants entering into arrangement with third defendant - Second defendant acting as manager of third defendant - Claimants seeking payment of unpaid sum - Second defendant applying to strike out claim - Claimants applying for summary judgment - Whether appropriate to pierce corporate veil.
Company Corporate personality. In proceedings where the claimants sought the payment of approximately 40,000 in respect of an arrangement with the third defendant, which they alleged had been negotiated and supervised by the second defendant, the court ruled, inter alia, that the claim should be struck out as against the second defendant. In the circumstances, there was no basis for maintaining the claim against him. Piercing the corporate veil could be done comparatively rarely and in special circumstances which were far removed from those of the instant case.
