Highlight

A district court’s decision on whether to pierce a corporation’s corporate veil is heavily fact-specific.
Under N.D.R.Civ.P. 52(a)(1), in an action tried on the facts without a jury, a district court must find the facts specially to allow the reviewing court to adequately understand the basis of the district court’s decision.
Conclusory, general findings do not comply with N.D.R.Civ.P. 52(a), and a finding of fact that simply states a party has failed in or has sustained its burden of proof is inadequate under the rule.
