This article reconsiders whether corporate shareholders would benefit from the application of tort law principles to a limited shareholder liability analysis. In this Article, the author argues that tort law would address limited shareholder liability under a negligence and not a strict liability regime, and that a negligence regime would produce results similar to those produced under the current corporate law framework. Mr. Schley finds that tort law, like corporate law, would uphold limited shareholder liability.
