Superior Court Limits Savings Clause

Posted In Business Torts

Huffington v. T.C. Group LLC, C.A. N11C-01-030-JRJ-CCLD  (April 18, 2012)

Delaware has a savings statute that generally prevents the statute of limitations from expiring when a case is dismissed for technical reasons and then refiled in the right court.  But, as this decision points out, the savings statute has a much narrower scope than some might believe.  Thus, when as here, a case is filed in a jurisdiction other than that chosen by the parties in their contract and then dismissed for having violated the forum selection clause, the savings statute does not apply.
