Court Of Chancery Declines Injunction Despite Probabililty Of Success

Posted In M&A

In re El Paso Corp. Shareholder Litigation,  C.A. 6949-CS (February 29, 2012)

This is the now-famous decision finding several breaches of fiduciary duties by the negotiators of a merger, but declining to kill the deal that would have given stockholders a large premium.  The opinion is, as usual for its author, entertaining to read.  More importantly, however, it is once again proof that money may deaden any sense of fiduciary duty, particularly any sense of when there is a conflict of interest.
