Wilmington partner Mike Maimone was quoted in the Law360 article “Dell Ruling Bridges Philosophical Gap In Delaware Appraisal Law.” The Delaware Supreme Court’s reversal of the Chancery Court’s appraisal of a $25 billion deal to take Dell private sets guidelines for appraisal litigation moving forward.

Mike discussed the reasoning behind the court’s decision, noting that “[t]he Supreme Court gets concerned when the Chancery blazes a new trail and goes off a well established road.” He added that “Dell is a message from the Supreme Court that if a chancellor or vice chancellor goes off the road, they need to have a very good justification for it.”

Mike also indicated that the ruling reflects the court’s philosophy that “no transaction is perfect, but not all transactions are actionable.”
