Allegations of breach of contract by a subsidiary corporation aren’t enough to pierce the corporate veil in Massachusetts, absent "allegations of fraudulent or improper use of [the other entitie’s] corporate form in a manner related to the contract.

A summary of the decision from New York’s Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP is here.
