Court Of Chancery Explains Their Corporate Benefit Rule

Zimmerman v. Crothall, C.A. 6001-VCP (October 14, 2013)

When litigation confers a benefit upon a corporate entity, it is only fair that entity pay the fees incurred. Yet what constitutes a benefit may be contested, particularly by the corporation that is the subject of the suit. Here the Court held that forcing the LLC to comply with its agreements constituted such a benefit that fees should be awarded.
