Yours, Trulia
The Chancery Court and the Supreme Court of Delaware have moved quickly to try to put an end to disclosure-only shareholder suits, a peculiar but widespread practice that became known as the deal tax.

The Timeline
Kenneth J. Nachbar and Lindsay M. Kwoka, both of Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell LLP trace the progression of court decisions that led to Trulia.

The Professor’s Project
Professor Sean Griffith of Fordham Law School, working with Joseph Christensen, a Delaware lawyer, took on disclosure-only suits both in the courts of Delaware and in his own M&A seminar in Manhattan.

A Student’s Work
From Professor Griffith’s classroom, we present a sample of a student’s work on the project. Herewith, Hunter Book’s presentation.

The Chief Justice and the Chancellor
