Greenhunter Energy, Inc. v. W. Ecosystems Tech., Inc.Annotate this Case
Western Ecosystems Technology, Inc. (Western) and GreenHunter Wind Energy, LLC entered into a contract whereby Western provided the LLC consulting services. When the LLC paid nothing for Western’s services, Western brought a breach of contract action against the LLC. Western obtained a judgment against the LLC. Because the LLC had no assets upon which Western could execute, Western brought this action against GreenHunter Energy, Inc. (Appellant), the sole member of the LLC, seeking to pierce the LLC’s veil and hold Appellant liable for the LLC’s contractual obligations. The district court found in favor of Western, pierced the LLC’s veil, and awarded a judgment of $45,807 against Appellant. The Supreme Court affirmed the district court’s judgment piercing the LLC’s veil and imposing liability on Appellant for its debt to Western, holding that the district court correctly applied the applicable law and that its findings of fact were not clearly erroneous.
