Sanctions for Violation of Court Order

In The Matter of the Rehabilitation of Indemnity Insurance Company, RRG, C.A. No. 8601-VCL (Del. Ch. Jan. 2, 2014).

This case addresses the standards the Court of Chancery will apply to willful and flagrant violations of a court order, in connection with imposing civil contempt sanctions. Because these types of violations remain a rare occurrence and this decision’s applicability will not be wide, those interested in the topic can download the rather short 24-page opinion.
