Court of Chancery Explains Duty of Good Faith and Fair Dealing

Amirsaleh v. Board of Trade of The City of New York, Inc., C.A.2822-CC (November 9, 2009)

The law of good faith and fair dealing in contracts is a “judicial tool used to imply terms in a contract that protect the reasonable expectations of the parties." This decision clearly explains Delaware law in this area, including the point that not acting in good faith involves bad faith and that is proved by showing an improper motive.
