Delaware Superior Court Applies The McWane Doctrine

Posted In Stay

Lincoln Benefit Life Company v. Wilmington Trust N.A., C.A. N18C-01-082 EMD CCLD (July 31, 2018)

This decision has an extensive discussion of when a Delaware court will stay a matter in favor of litigation in another forum.  Its application of the McWane doctrine governing stays of second filed cases is particularly helpful.  Under the circumstances of this case, a stay in favor of the foreign jurisdiction was warranted.
