Court of Chancery Extends Time To Seek Indemnification
In this decision, the Court dealt with an odd set of facts that are not likely to be repeated. However, the opinion is noteworthy because the Court declined to bar a suit for indemnification even when the complaint had been filed more than three years after the right to indemnification arose. The plaintiff was, in a sense, a victim of a judicial nightmare in Florida where his claim had first been barred and then reinstated by an appeal court after the statutory limitations period expired. In permitting his claim to go forward, the Court of Chancery again showed its support for indemnification claims.
