Bench Trial on Delaware General Corporate Law

Scott Watnik

December 1, 2017

Scott Watnik represented one of our clients in a week-long bench trial before the Delaware Court of Chancery in  Franklin et al v. Herman Miller, Inc. et al, (Del. Chancery, C.A. NO. 10477-CB).  This is the first case to ever go to trial concerning Delaware General Corporate Law §§ 204 and 205, which enact a process by which a Delaware corporation can ratify defective corporate acts.  A verdict is expected in 2018 after the parties’ post-trial briefing is completed.  If you have any questions concerning this case, please contact Scott Watnik at
