Facts

Pioneer Granite Company (Pioneer) and two other corporations were consolidated into a new corporation, North Star Granite Corporation (North Star) (defendant).

Instead, Pioneer Vice President Anderson (plaintiff) signed the deed in the blank designated for the president. The plaintiffs allege that because of this, the deed is void.
