What does "piercing the corporate veil" mean insofar as NY's courts are concerned?

As explained in "Piercing the Corporate Veil" Under New York Law," it is where you seek to pursue the personal assets of a corporate officer for a corporate debt based upon the contention that the corporation is being used - wrongly and fraudulently - as a shield against a rightful claim, often in the breach of contract context.
