Professor Larry Hamermesh, the Ruby R. Vale Professor of Corporate and Business Law at Widener University School of Law, and a member of the Delaware State Bar Association’s Council of the Corporation Law Section, recently posted an article that we linked to here, about changing the Delaware default rule for the voting standard in director elections. Jim McRitchie responded to the good professor’s argument here, and now we have the benefit of Prof. Hamermesh’s “rebuttal” here.

This is classic productive conversation on an issue of great interest to those who want to follow the latest developments in corporate governance.

Supplement: Professor William Sjostrom Jr. previously addressed this issue in a post that Professor Hamermesh links to here.
