In Greb v. Diamond International Corp., 295 P.3d 353 (Cal. 2013) (No. S18 3365), the California Supreme Court held that California Corporations Code § 2010, which governs the winding-up and survival of dissolved corporations, does not apply to corporations formed in states other than California, resolving a conflict among that state’s courts of appeals. In this case, plaintiffs sued the defendant, a Delaware corporation that had been dissolved for several years, alleging injuries from exposure to asbestos. Defendant moved to dismiss, arguing that because it was dissolved more than three years before the lawsuit was filed, the suit was barred by Delaware’s three-year survival statute for dissolved corporations. Plaintiffs, on the other hand, argued that California’s corporate survival statute, which provides no time limitation for suing a dissolved corporation, applied to all foreign corporations that, like defendant, were qualified to do business in California. The trial court declined to apply § 2010 to defendant and dismissed the case. In affirming, the California Supreme Court addressed the conflicting appellate court opinions on the issue and concluded that the better-reasoned interpretation of § 2010 was that it applied only to corporations organized under California law. The court found that if it applied § 2010 to all foreign corporations qualified to do business in California, then it would similarly have to apply other provisions of the California Corporate Code to foreign corporations. The court concluded that such an outcome would be unworkable, given that the California Code provisions often differ from the requirements of other states, including the states of formation of many corporations operating in California, and therefore would invite “treacherous conflicts of law that the corporation would find impossible to navigate.”
