Court of Chancery Affirms Limitations Period for Dissolved Entity

Posted In Dissolution

In the Matter of Dow Chemical International Inc. of Delaware, C.A. 3972-CC (Del. Ch. Oct. 14, 2008)

This decision has a good outline of when the right to sue a Delaware corporation expires after it is dissolved. The basic rule is that after three years no suit may be filed. Exceptions may exist for entities that still have undistributed assets and when a receiver is appointed for those entities.
