CorpCast Episode 9: 2015 Year in Review
Welcome back to CorpCast! In this 2015 Year in Review, we discuss several important cases from the past year, starting with the tidal wave of antagonism in the Court of Chancery towards disclosure-only settlements ending with In re Trulia, Inc. Stockholder Litigation. We then move to discuss several instances of “financial advisors behaving badly,” with a look at In re TIBCO Software Inc. Stockholders Litigation and RBC Capital Markets, LLC v. Jervis. We’ll also take a look at opinions dealing with conflicted transactions, revisiting Corwin v. KKR Financial Holdings LLC and Delaware County Employees Retirement Fund v. Sanchez, as well as discussing In re Cornerstone Therapeutics Inc., Shareholder Litigation and In re Dole Food Co., Inc. Stockholder Litigation. Finally, we’ll look to some contract actions, including 1 Oak Private Equity Venture Capital Limited v. Twitter, Inc. and SIGA Technologies, Inc. v. PharmAthene, Inc., and touch on the invalidation of company bylaws in In re Vaalco Energy Inc. Consolidated Stockholder Litigation.
Of note, our own stat guy tells us we (Pete) misstated the liability in RBC Capital Markets. It was $75 million, not $83 million.
