Article 01. COMMON LAW
Sec. 01.10.010. Applicability of common law.

Roeckl v. FDIC, 885 P. 2d 1067 - Alaska: Supreme Court 1994 states:
[A]s a matter of common law, which "generally recognizes that persons may transact business under an assumed or fictitious name as long as fraud ... [is] not involved." Platt v. Locke, 11 Utah 2d 273, 358 P.2d 95, 98 (1961). The proposition appears to be well settled that "[i]n the absence of a statutory prohibition, a person, without abandoning his real name, may adopt or assume a name, and he may use such assumed name to identify himself in the transaction of his business, the execution of contracts and the carrying on of his affairs." Kreuter v. United States, 201 F.2d 33, 35 (10th Cir.1953).
