Document: Alaska Elec. Pension Fund v. Brown, No. 85, 2007, Berger, J. (Del. Dec. 21, 2007)

The Supreme Court reversed and remanded the decision of the Court of Chancery, holding that where an out of state class action plaintiff gained an additional benefit after the settlement of Delaware litigation, it was the defendant’s burden to show that the existence of the foreign litigation did not contribute to the additional benefit with respect to the granting of legal fees to the foreign plaintiff’s attorney.
