In Reeder v. Wagner, (Del. Ch., Nov. 1, 2007), read letter decision here, the Chancery Court determined that it did not have equity jurisdiction over this Declaratory Judgment action, and thus transferred the case to Superior Court. (For non-Delaware readers of this blog, Superior Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction.) In reviewing the complaint, the court observed that it did not contain any of the following conventional bases for equity jurisdiction:
"… either a claim arising out of an equitable relationship or a well pleaded demand for relief that is exclusively equitable in nature."
