Court of Chancery Denies Director Full Inspection Rights
Posted In Books and Records
Bizzari v. Suburban Waste Services Inc., C. A. No. 10709-JL (Del. Ch. Aug. 30, 2016)
This is an almost unprecedented decision to limit the inspection rights of a corporate director. Directors generally have “essentially unfettered” access to the corporate records to fulfill their fiduciary roles. Here, given the director’s improper motive to use the records to compete with or harm the corporation, the result is entirely justified under the bizarre set of facts.
