In re Nat’l City Corp. S’holders Litig., No. 4123-CC (Del. Ch. June 5, 2009), read decision here.
In this short letter decision, the Chancellor discusses the public policy reasons behind Chancery Court Rule 5(g) which deals with those situations when a document filed with the court may be placed “under seal.” This letter decision involved a request by certain news organizations for access to documents filed under seal and the court explained in this case the interface between the public policy reasons between Rule 5(g) and the general practice of making filings with the court available to the public.
