As I have done for opinions issued in 2005 and 2006, I have prepared a review of key corporate and commercial decisions from the Delaware Chancery Court and Delaware Supreme Court during the year 2007. See my two prior yearly summaries here. I have arranged to submit this year’s overview to The Delaware Law Weekly and I should let them publish it before I post it on this blog in about a week or so. There is a necessary subjectivity in the cases that I selected from among the 200 or so that I summarized on these pages during 2007. It is not uncommon for the decisions to be 50 to 60 (or more) pages each, and many of the opinions could easily be (and have been) the subject of separate articles in their own right. Thus, in order to cover 20 or 30 noteworthy cases in a short article one is limited to mostly identifying the issues raised in the decisions so that an interested reader will be made aware of the full opinion. (Most of the decisions are noteworthy, but it would not be practical to include them all in a short overview. Remember, they are all still available on this blog.) I also did not spend much time on some of the more well-known cases that have already received widespread attention.
The link above will lead you to the 2005 overview that appeared in the subscription-only publication called The Delaware Corporate Litigation Reporter, as well as the 2006 review that appeared in a Bloomberg publication called the Corporate Law Report.
Best wishes to all my readers and your families for a happy and healthy and fruitful New Year.
