Partnership By Estoppel – de Facto – Joint Venture – Vertical Integration Plan – Corporate – Veil Piercing (access required)

Best Cartage, Inc. v. Stonewall Packaging, LLC Plaintiff alleged the two defendants were working together to vertically integrate their production of cardboard. The allegations of defendants’ combined efforts, including the fact that one of defendant Jackson Paper Manufacturing Co.’s officers signed the contract at issue on behalf of defendant Stonewall Packaging, were sufficient to state claims of partnership by estoppel, de facto partnership, and joint venture. However, plaintiff failed to allege the wrongdoing needed to state a claim for piercing the corporate veil.
