Ropp v. King, (Del. Ch., July 25, 2007), read opinion here. The Chancery Court considered an appeal from a decision by the Delaware Securities Commissioner on an issue of first impression in Delaware. The opinion involved a procedure where the Delaware Securities Commissioner, who is part of the Delaware Attorney General’s office. brings a complaint and also appoints a deputy to conduct the hearing. In this matter, the deputy issued a decision that the Commissioner did not favor and wanted to appeal. The Chancery Court determined after careful analysis of the applicable procedures and standards, that the Commissioner could not, in effect, appeal his own decision.
