Plaintiff obtained an arbitration award against Adamstos which it sought to collect from Vigorous and Blue Wall as successor corporations or alter egos of Vigorous.  Since the claim arose in admiralty, the court applied federal common law.  Summary judgment was affirmed.  Plaintiff failed to allege that Vigorous or Blue Wall received a transfer of all or substantially all Vigorous’ assets which is a prerequisite to a finding of successor liability under federal common law.  To impose alter ego liability, the plaintiff must prove (1) that the alter ego defendant exercises total domination over the subservient corporation, (2) injustice will result from recognizing the subservient corporation’s separate existence, and (3) the controlling defendant had fraudulent intent or the intent to evade statutory or contractual obligations.  In the Ninth Circuit (unlike the 2d Circuit) all three of those elements must be satisfied.  The decision lists nine indicia of alter ego status but says the list is non-exhaustive and that proof of some indicia will not alone be dispositive or even enough to overcome a summary judgment motion.  Plaintiff failed to submit substantial evidence sufficient to raise a triable issue as to its alter ego claim.
