The Lodges v. Bear Hollow 2015 UT App 6, -P.3d- (Jan. 2, 2015) 

Jan 2, 2015

”To survive a motion for summary judgment on an alter ego theory, the party alleging alter ego liability must present evidence creating a genuine issue of disputed material fact with respect to both the “formalities requirement,” which assesses whether the personalities of the two entities demonstrate a degree of the unity of interest and ownership such that they are one; and the “fairness requirement,” which requires the movant show observance of the corporate form would sanction a fraud, promote injustice, or condone an inequitable result. “[T]he possibility that a plaintiff may have difficulty enforcing a judgment against [the corporate entity] alone is not the type of injustice that warrants piercing the corporate veil.”
