Court Of Chancery Explains Good Faith And Fair Dealing

Posted In M&A

Winshall v. Viacom International Inc.,  C.A. 6074-CS (November 10, 2011)

This is another case where a party tried to re-do a contract by claiming that the failure to give it more than it bargained for constituted a violation of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.  In rejecting that claim, the Court again explains the tight limits of that covenant.  It just can not be used to make a new deal.

Affirmer, del Sup. 39, 2013 (October 7, 2013).
