Supreme Court Stresses Literal Contract Interpretation
Posted In Breach of Contractev3 Inc v. Lesh, No. 515, 2013 (Del. September 30, 2014) Delaware law favors a strict interpretation of contract language. Here, the Supreme Court rejected an attempt to read into a contract provisions from a letter of intent signed before the final contract was executed. The final contract did not provide by its literal terms such an interpretation and the Supreme Court would not have any of the plaintiff's attempts to read it otherwise.
