Episode 322 — Checking in on the Caremark Cases

Over the last ten years, we have seen a marked shift from the Delaware Chancery Court chipping away at corporate board member liability claims. In a number of seminal cases involving Boeing airplane crashes (In re the Boeing Co. Derivative Litig., No. 2019-0907 (Del. Ch. Sept 7, 2021)), and deadly listeria outbreaks from tainted ice cream (Marchand v. Barnhill, 212 A.3d 805 (Del. 2019)), Delaware Courts have upheld plaintiffs’ cases against claims of failing to adequately plead violations of the standards set forth in Caremark, 698 A.2d 959 (Del. Ch. 1996), (establishing basic pleading requirements to withstand motions to dismiss).

In this episode, Mike Volkov provides a comprehensive update on the recent Caremark decisions issued by the Delaware Chancery Court, underscoring their importance for accountability and governance in the corporate world.
