Court of Chancery Upholds Director Decision Rejected by Stockholders

Posted In Directors

In re Lear Corp. S'holder Litig., C.A. 2778-VCS (Del. Ch. Sept. 2, 2008)

In this decision the court dismissed claims against directors whose decision to approve a merger was rejected by the stockholders and the company then had to pay a termination fee. The Court carefully explains why directors may sometimes be wrong, but without incurring any liability for that decision.
