Bristol Myers Squibb Co. (Bristol) (defendant) owned Medical Engineering Corporation (MEC) (defendant). MEC’s Board of Directors was also dominated by officers of Bristol. Board members who did not work directly for Bristol were not necessarily told of board meetings. Bristol had to authorize hiring and compensation decisions for MEC. Bristol provided marketing and testing services for MEC’s products, including putting their own name on MEC products. One of those products, polyurethane-coated breast implants, allegedly injured the women in whom they had been implanted. The women sued MEC and Bristol, alleging both that they could pierce MEC’s veil and that Bristol was directly liable for their injuries. Bristol moved for summary judgment.
