District Court Interprets Limitations Savings Statute

Posted In Business Torts
Hartsel v. The Vanguard Group Inc., C.A. 13-1128-SLR (D. Del. January 26, 2015) This is an interesting decision because it interprets the seldom-used Delaware Savings Statute [10 Del. C. Section 8118].  The court held that a derivative suit dismissed for failure to make a demand on the board is not saved from the expiration of the statute of limitations under the Savings Statute. Hence, a new suit that followed a demand of the board may be time barred. Share
