Court of Chancery Awards Fees Based on Intangible Benefit

In re Yahoo! Shareholders Litigation, C.A. 3561-CC (Del. Ch. Mar. 6, 2009)

This is another in a line of cases where substantial attorney fees ($8,400,000) are awarded to a stockholder whose complaint achieves an intangible benefit for the corporation. Here the benefit was the end of Yahoo's employee severance plan that made it harder to sell Yahoo.
