Dismissal of Claims Against a Dissolved Corporation

Attorney Susan K. McIntosh obtained a complete dismissal of all claims by a dissolved corporation following expiration of the time within which the corporation could be reinstated as an active corporation.  Ms. McIntosh argued that the lawsuit abated as a matter of law where the corporation ceased to exist after it failed to reinstate within the reinstatement period allowed by statute.  The common law applied because the business corporations statute was silent on the issue.
