Court of Chancery Sets Fees for Supplemental Proxy Materials

In re James River Group Inc. Shareholders Litigation, C.A. No. 3173-VCL ( January 8, 2008).

Here, the court awarded $400,000 in fees in connection with the settlement of a class action when the relief obtained was a supplement to the proxy statement.

While the company claimed it was always going to send the supplemental materials, the court noted that was contrary to the recital in the settlement agreement. Seems like it is not good to go back on your word in Chancery Court.
