Court Of Chancery Awards Fees For Fraud

Paron Capital Management LLC v. Crombie,  C.A. 6380-VCP (May 22, 2012)

Recovering attorney fees is rare in Delaware litigation.  However, this decision enforces another of the few exceptions to the American rule that usually denies a fee award.  The exception is for when a fraud requires a plaintiff to spend the fees in defense or prosecution of a claim involving a third party.  In that case, the fees are really just damages caused by the fraud and may be recovered.
