Chapter 20: Jurisdiction over directors and officers in Delaware
This chapter provides an overview of the necessary jurisdictional underpinnings for shareholder litigation, with a focus on Delaware. Over time, the courts and the state legislature have developed a set of statutes and standards that allow Delaware courts to hear cases against nonresident directors and officers of corporations organized in the state. The chapter outlines the multiple sources of adjudicatory power: implied consent statutes, long-arm statutes, and conspiracy jurisdiction. With a critical eye, it analyses the expansive geographic reach claimed by Delaware courts.
