In a recent letter ruling, the Delaware Court of Chancery provided a practice tip for those engaged in litigation before the court who seek an extension of the word-limit for briefs: Don’t present the court with a “Morton’s Fork.” That is, don’t make the court choose between two equally unappealing alternatives by waiting until the last business day before the brief is due. In a prior opinion in the Hermelin case highlighted on these pages, at the famous footnote 19, the court explained the difference between other somewhat similar expressions, like Hobson’s Choice, that can easily be conflated.
