Delaware Supreme Court Hears Appeal of Confidentiality Issue in Al Jazeera Suit

The Delaware Supreme Court heard oral argument a few days ago on whether parts of the various pleadings filed with the Court of Chancery in a dispute involving the Al Jazeera network and AT & T should be kept from the public based on an interpretation of the relatively recently adopted Court of Chancery Rule 5.1 which provides the standard that will be applied to determine what parts, if any, of a document filed with the court in connection with a lawsuit may be redacted or withheld from public view.
A prior post highlighted the Chancery rulings in this case.
