Court Of Chancery Explains Drag Along Rights

Posted In LP Agreements

Dawson v. Pittco Capital Partners L.P., C.A. 3148-VCN (April 30, 2012)

This is an interesting decision because it explains the limits of drag along rights.  While some old case law and some new contract language try to spell out when a stockholder, creditor or other interested party may have their rights affected by a corporate transaction taken without their consent, this makes it clear that there needs to be very explicit authority to do so, particularly when we are talking about drag along rights that are contractually based.
