Two recent Chancery Court cases deal with the interpretation of 2 very different types of agreements.
In Chrin v. Ibrix Inc.,download file, the court interprets a dispute about a Stock Purchase Agreement, and applied the key contract principle of implied duty of good faith and fair dealing as well as the truism that parol evidence will not be allowed if the contract terms are clear.
In the somewhat (one would hope) unusual case called In The Matter of: The Purported Last Will and Testament of Arlington J. Wiltbank, Sr.,download file, the court found that undue influence by a son in connection with the preparation of his infirm father’s Last Will, was a basis to render void that document, and as a result the estate was shared equally with all the children of the decedent as opposed to the entire estate being enjoyed by only the one son who was successfully accused of undue influence.
