68 F.3d 1451
SYNOPSIS: Plaintiffs, computer keyboard users, appealed a summary judgment entered in favor of defendant, manufacturer's parent company, by the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York in an action to recover for repetitive stress injuries from computer keyboards.
-Among the factors to be considered in determining whether the two corporations operate as a single economic entity are: whether the corporation was adequately capitalized; whether the corporation was solvent; whether corporate formalities were observed; whether the dominant shareholder siphoned corporate funds; and whether in general the corporation simply functioned as a facade.
OUTCOME: The court affirmed the summary judgment for defendant, manufacturer's parent company, against plaintiff injured persons in an action to recover for repetitive stress injuries from computer keyboards where there were no genuine issues of material fact and defendant was entitled to judgment as a matter of law.
