HAVE A CORPORATION’S CONTROLLING SHAREHOLDERS MANIPULATED THE CORPORATION FOR THEIR OWN SELF-INTEREST?

The controlling shareholders of a corporation may not manipulate the corporation for their own self-interest, without regard to the interests of the other shareholders or corporate creditors. If they cause corporate action which disadvantages the minority shareholders, or the corporation’s creditors, and if objections to that action cannot be amicably resolved, the controlling shareholders may be held personally liable for any losses created by their action.
