Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Chickasaw County, James C. Bauch, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Vogel, P.J., and Doyle and Bower, JJ.  Opinion by Bower, J.  (19 pages)

            Woodruff Construction, LLC, appeals the district court’s decision not to pierce the corporate veil of Clark Farms, Ltd. and enforce a judgment debt against K.W. Clark.  OPINION HOLDS: We find insufficient evidence of undercapitalization, but the corporation’s finances were commingled, it did not have separate books, and it did not observe the corporate formalities.  We determine the corporate veil should be pierced.
