Case Synopsis

The court considered whether a judgment creditor in a domesticated foreign judgment may add a nonparty to a final judgment, under the alter ego doctrine, simply by moving to amend the judgment. The court held that such a procedure violates the due process rights of the nonparty whom the creditor seeks to add. To observe the requisite attributes of due process, a judgment creditor who wishes to assert an alter ego claim must do so in an independent action against the alleged alter ego.
