Court of Chancery Denies Redundant Inspection

Norfolk Country Retirement System v. Jos. A. Bank Clothiers, Inc., C.A. 3443-VCP (Del. Ch. Feb. 12, 2009)


Repeated books and records demands by different stockholders should be viewed favorably. When, as here, a special litigation committee (SLC) has reviewed the conduct sought to be investigated by the plaintiff, and the independence and diligence of the SLC cannot be fairly questioned, then a stockholder who demands inspection may receive the SLC report and some backup materials, but no more absent a stronger showing of real justification to think the SLC did not do its job.
