New England

In  News  People's United Bank v. B & B Fire Protection, Inc., the
court held that a guaranty executed with apparent, but not actual, authority was enforceable in a situation when the guarantor's owner failed to repudiate the guaranty upon learning of it, and instead drained the guarantor's assets.  Click here to learn more.

In Besaw, Trustee of Revocable Living Trust of Ernest P. Giroux v. Giroux, the court held that a promissory note holder's right to sue for the return of collateral accrued, and the statute of limitations period began to run, not on the initial failure to pay but when the borrower failed to cure the default within 45 days of notice of default, in a situation where the promissory note required such notice and cure period expiry as a condition of note holder's right to sue on the promissory note.

Southern Region

In  Nationwide Mutual Insurance   Company v. Eagle Window & Door, Inc.,  the South Carolina Supreme Court reversed a court of appeal decision relating to successor liability of a bankruptcy purchaser in a contribution action and found that officer, director and shareholder continuity are required for a "mere continuation" analysis with commonality of officers, standing alone, not rendering liability.

In Mitchell v. K&B Fabricators, Inc., the court held that a corporate officer and director usurped the corporate opportunity of a supplier corporation in which he was also a director by choosing to in-source services previously provided by the supplier, and that the proper remedy was to impose a constructive trust on profits attributable to the insourcing.
