WY Law Division
This case note begins with a review of the history and development of LLC veil-piercing tests in Wyoming. Next, this case note outlines the facts and the opinion of the GreenHunter case. Then, it explains the two-prong test for veilpiercing, and sets forth how specific factors may or may not be used to meet the test. In GreenHunter, the court articulated a revised test for piercing the veil of an LLC which emphasized the intensive fact specific nature of the analysis, focused the analysis on whether the facts indicated a lack of separation due to misuse of the LLC, and whether leaving the LLC veil intact would result in some form of injustice.
