December 11, 2001.

Order, Supreme Court, New York County (Louis York, J.), entered on or about July 6, 2000, which granted defendants' motion for summary judgment dismissing the complaint, and denied plaintiff's cross motion for partial summary judgment, unanimously affirmed, without costs.

Bonnie P. Josephs, for plaintiff-appellant.

Richard J. Feinberg, for defendants-respondents.

Before: Rosenberger, J.P., Williams, Ellerin, Buckley, Marlow, JJ.


The motion court properly pierced plaintiff's corporate veil. While the claims made herein are not barred by the prior divorce action between plaintiff's principal and the individual defendant, in which the court never reached matters of equitable distribution, neither are such claims amenable to resolution by way of corporate law given the transparency of the corporate entities.

THIS CONSTITUTES THE DECISION AND ORDER OF THE SUPREME COURT, APPELLATE DIVISION, FIRST DEPARTMENT.
