Court of Chancery Explains Scope of Representation Clauses

Ivize of Milwaukee, LLC v. Compex Litigation Support LLC, C.A. 3158-VCL (April 22, 2009)

While a statement may not be a lie unless the speaker knows he has failed to tell the truth, a contractual representation does not require knowledge that it is false for it to be actionable if untrue. This decision then puts to rest the argument that scienter is needed to prove a breach of a contractual representation.
