I don’t know how to handle this Business question and need guidance.
Johnson Trucking, Inc., owned by Pat Johnson, charged its fuel purchases to an account at Juice Express. When Johnson Trucking, Inc. was not paid on several jobs, it was unable to pay amounts owed to Juice. Shortly thereafter, Johnson Trucking, Inc. ceased doing business and was dissolved.

Pat argued that he was not personally liable for corporate debt. What are the factors the court will consider in deciding whether or not to pierce the corporate veil? Should the court pierce the corporate veil? Why or why not
