Court Of Chancery Limits Summary Judgment Filing
Posted In M&A
City Of Roseville Employees' Retirement System v. Ellison, C.A. 6900-CS (July 24, 2013)
This transcript ruling explains the Court of Chancery practice on hearing motions for summary judgment. Briefly, it does not want to do so when there is less than 90 days after all briefing is done before the trial is to start. Not only do such late-filed motions put a burden on the party preparing for trial but they require the court to decide those motions quickly when the circumstances do not warrant expedited treatment.
