Elvin Grinder Construction, Inc., a Maryland corporation, was formed, with Grinder personally owning 52 percent of the stock of the corporation.

Grinder asserted that the debts were owed by the corporation. Bryans amended its complaint to include the corporation as a defendant. Who is liable to Bryans? Grinder v. Bryans Road Building & Supply Co., Inc., 432 A. 2d 453, 1981 Md. Lexis 246 (Court of Appeals of Maryland)
