In Greb v. Diamond Int’l Corp., 2010 Cal. App. LEXIS 566 (Cal. App. 1st Dist. Apr. 26, 2010), the California Court of Appeal for the First District affirmed the trial court’s dismissal of a personal injury claim against a dissolved Delaware corporation, holding that the claim was filed more than three years after dissolution of the corporation in violation of Delaware General Corporation Law Section 278.
