Delaware Chancery Court Issues 'Best Practices' To Handle Complex Procedural Issues

On January 13, 2012, the Court of Chancery issued non-binding guidelines or "best practices" to help lawyers and their parties handle common and sometimes complex  procedural issues that arise in litigation before the Delaware Court of Chancery. 

Kevin F. Brady, who is a member of the Court of Chancery Rules Committee, prepared this summary.

The 18-page Guidelines cover a variety of topics from as simple as hearing protocols, courtesy copies, contacting Chambers and scheduling expedited or summary proceedings to more expedited subjects such as expert report and confidentiality agreements.  The Guidelines also include sample forms for such proceedings as scheduling a preliminary injunction, a Rule 12(b)(6) motion or cross-motions for summary judgment. 

The Guidelines, available for download here, include procedures that the Court would prefer to see.
