Court of Chancery Denies TRO for Laches

Posted In Injunctions

Topspin Partners L.P. v. Rocksolid Systems. Inc., C.A. 4275-VCL (Del. Ch. Jan. 21, 2009)


This decision illustrates the sometimes forgotten Delaware rule that if you get a TRO you better act fast. Here the plaintiff sat on its rights for ten months and the Court, while finding that irreparable harm might occur and that the claims appeared meritorious, denied immediate relief because of the delay.
