Court of Chancery Refuses To Dismiss Business Tort Case
Posted In Business Torts
Agilent Technologies, Inc. v. Kirkland, C.A. 3512-VCS (Del. Ch. Jan. 20, 2009)
This decision is interesting because it illustrates what a party to litigation can or cannot say about the case. The failure to adhere to the rules results in a business tort claim for unfair practices, etc. Here is the rule in a nutshell: You can say that there is a suit on file but you cannot say that you are sure to win and put the other side out of business. After all, that is for the Court to decide.
