Court of Chancery Upholds Complaint Against AIG Entities

Teachers' Retirement System of Louisiana v. Aidinoff, C.A. No. 20106, 2006 WL 1725572 (Del. Ch. June 21, 2006). In this decision the Court of Chancery extensively discusses the legal theories under which the plainitff may seek a recovery from two of the entities alleged to have helped the AIG Chairman profit at the expense of AIG. In effect, the Court held that if as alleged these entities were set up to profit by doing what AIG might have done for itself, then their profits are subject to recovery under several theories such as the imposition of a constructive trust. The opinion is a good source of legal theory for recovery in such cases.
