Superior Court Explains When Officer Is Liable For Tort
Posted In Business Torts
Yavar Rzayev LLC v. Roffman, Del. Super. C.A. S14L-12-035 MJB (August 31, 2015)
This decision explains well when a corporate officer may be personally liable for a business tort under the “personal participation doctrine.” Mere knowledge of wrongdoing is not enough, but active participation is also not required before an officer who encourages or directs wrongful conduct may be held personally responsible.
