Cartanza v. DNREC, et al., (Del. Ch., Jan. 12, 2009), read letter decision here. This short Chancery Court decision includes a few procedural gems. For example, it discusses the standard for review of a Master’s decision as being de novo, noting that the Chancery Court can review the factual record and the court can make its own determinations without conducting a new trial. The court in this case adopted the legal reasoning of the Master.
In addition, the court discusses issues of justiciability under the Declaratory Judgment Act.
