Emerging Trends in Corporate Books and Records Litigation
Recording Available: Thursday, June 18, 2020
With the noticeable drop in M&A injunction requests and discovery records, stockholder plaintiffs turn to Section 220 of the Delaware General Corporation Law (DGCL) to access documents for filing their post-closing class action complaints. Section 220 is an evidently helpful tool as it does not only include formal board materials, but also electronic communications like emails and text messages. This resulted in the proliferation of stockholder demands to inspect corporate books and records.
While recent cases continue to shed light on the evolving Section 220 case law, practitioners must keep themselves in the know of emerging trends and developments in the backdrop. Similarly, companies must ensure that their existing procedures, policies, and best practices are consistent when a Section 220 demand is received to avoid pitfalls.
