Case summaries

Piercing the Veil
William v. Morrisey, No. 14-0792, decided November 17, 2020. The West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals held that the defendant, a lawful who had been found personally liable for violating consumer protection laws, waived the issue that the trial court needed to pierce his LLC’s veil by failing to raise it at trial. The court also declined to address the issue on appeal based on the plain error doctrine.
