of the Year
Stratton v. American Independent Insurance Co., 08C-12-012-JRS CCLD (May 11, 2011) In this opinion, the Court confronts the narrow issues of mootness and standing in considering whether a putative class action representative has lost standing to pursue the class action now that he has received from the defendant all he could have received in the prosecution of his individual claim.
Textron Inc. v. Acument Global Technology Inc., C.A. 10C-07-103-JRJ CCLD (Apr. 6, 2011) The Court carefully considers a complex commercial contract by applying settled Delaware law to the issues presented, and denying a motion for judgment on the pleadings while providing the litigants guidance that may lead them to resolve their dispute.
Allen Family Foods, Inc. v. Capitol Carbonic Corp., 10C-10-313-JRS CCLD (Mar. 31, 2011) The Court adopts Restatement (Second) of Torts § 766A, which recognizes a claim for intentional interference with another's performance of his own contract, but dismisses action because the claim is not sufficiently pled.
