Shares of dissolved corporation is matter to be handled by trial court, COA rules

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A dispute between two brothers over corporate shares left from the dissolution of the family business got a rehearing by the Indiana Court of Appeals, but no reversal.

In July 2013, Timothy Enders had appealed the trial court’s granting of the petition by his recently deceased brother, Randall Enders, to dissolve Enders & Longway Builders Inc., the business the brothers had inherited from their father.

At that time, the Court of Appeals concluded the buy-sell agreement that limited the transfer of corporate shares had been terminated when the corporation was dissolved one day before Randall’s death.

Timothy petitioned for a rehearing on the grounds that the Court of Appeals had ruled the shares were not jointly owned with rights of survivorship at the time Randall died.

However, at the rehearing of Timothy S. Enders and Enders & Longway Builders, Inc. v. Debra Sue Enders as Personal Representative of the Estate of Randall Enders, 71A03-1211-PL-494, the COA stated it had not made any determinations about the shares certificates.

The Court of Appeals asserted it only ruled that the trial court properly dissolved the corporation. Therefore, the issue of the shares certificates is something to be resolved by the trial court during the closing of corporate affairs and distribution of corporate assets.

Writing for the court, Judge Michael Barnes stated, the COA stands by its previous opinion.

  2. We won!!!! It was a long expensive battle but we did it. I just wanted people to know it is possible. And if someone can point me I. The right direction to help change the way the courts look as grandparents as only grandparents. The courts assume the parent does what is in the best interest of the child...and the court is wrong. A lot of the time it is spite and vindictiveness that separates grandparents and grandchildren. It should not have been this long and hard and expensive...Something needs to change...

  3. Typo on # of Indiana counties

  4. The Supreme Court is very proud that they are Giving a billion dollar public company from Texas who owns Odyssey a statewide monopoly which consultants have said is not unnecessary but worse they have already cost Hoosiers well over $100 MILLION, costing tens of millions every year and Odyssey is still not connected statewide which is in violation of state law. The Supreme Court is using taxpayer money and Odyssey to compete against a Hoosier company who has the only system in Indiana that is connected statewide and still has 40 of the 82 counties despite the massive spending and unnecessary attacks
