Court of Chancery Rejects Challenge To Stockholder Consent

B.F. Rich Co., Inc v. Gray,  C.A. No. 1896-N (Del. Ch. November 9, 2006) refused to consider the defense in Section 225 case that the plaintiff would hurt the corporation if he took it over. As the Court noted, the issues in Section 225 cases are tightly confined to the validity of the stockholder consent.  Any abuse of the power gained by use of those consents is for a later proceeding. The opinion is of some additional interest for its discussion of the power of a parent to vote the stock of minor children under Connecticut law. Share
