Employment of Corporate Executives by Majority Stockholders, 47 Yale Law Journal 1079 (1938)

Though innocuous on its face, this rule has been applied by the courts with telling effect to invalidate a particular type of contract, and much chagrin has been caused to the unsuspecting lawyers who drew such contracts.
