I recently got word of another LexBlog client cited by the media – and this time, it isn’t just the attorney talking; it’s their blog.
According to Francis Pileggi, the Fox Rothschild LLP attorney who maintains the Delaware Corporate and Commercial Litigation Blog, an excerpt of a post he published on August 22 is scheduled to "appear in the upcoming issue of the subscription publication called The Delaware Corporate Litigation Reporter." The post – "Excessive Executive Compensation (looting?) Claim Allowed To Proceed" – highlights the Delaware Chancery Court’s decision in the case of In Re: InfoUSA Shareholders Litigation.
Mention of Francis comes in the article’s fifth paragraph:
Francis G.X. Pileggi, a corporation law attorney with Fox Rothchild LLP in
Wilmington who writes a web log on Delaware law, said the plaintiffs passed the threshold test of Delaware’s pre-suit demand requirement because they focused on the directors’ motives rather than the merits of their decisions.
“The court’s opinion also provides a practical ‘how to’ guide that is indispensable for lawyers who engage in business litigation to the extent that it explains in detail the successful method to prepare a complaint for a breach of fiduciary duty,” Pileggi says in his web page comments on the opinion, on http://www.delawarelitigation.com/.
The article is scheduled to appear in Volume 22, Issue 5 of the Delaware Corporate Litigation Reporter.
