Dolphin Ltd. P’ship I, L.P. v. Gupta, et al., (Del. Ch. , Jan. 22, 2007),  2007 WL 315864, read letter-opinion  here . This Chancery Court case discussed the factors the court considers in a Motion to Consolidate pursuant to Chancery Court Rule 42(a). The two cases involved were both derivative claims and the court discussed the interplay between Rules 12(b)(6) and 23.1 as well as the potentially perverse result that might ensue in not being able to consider  in one proceeding the different claims against the same parties based on the same set of operative facts–if the cases were not consolidated.
