Delaware Supreme Court to hear oral arguments at Widener Delaware Law

February 4th, 2016 No comments

On Wednesday, February 10th the Delaware Supreme Court will hear oral arguments at Delaware Law. Three cases are scheduled for argument:

  • 10:00 a.m. – Smith v. State – This is Defendant’s direct appeal from his convictions for possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition by a person prohibited. The sole issue on appeal is the defendant’s argument that the Superior Court (Parkins) erred in refusing to suppress the evidence of the weapon and ammunition. The Superior Court found that there was not probable cause or reasonable suspicion to stop Defendant but concluded that the seizure was justified because Defendant was a witness to his juvenile companion’s “crime” of riding a bicycle at night without a light. Defendant asserts that riding a bicycle at night without a light is not a crime.
  • 11:10 a.m. – Nash v. Barra – This appeal involves derivative litigation arising from GM’s production of faulty ignition switches. The shareholders appeal the Court of Chancery’s (Glasscock) dismissal of their complaint. Plaintiffs contend on appeal that the court erred by: (i) failing to give Plaintiffs all reasonable inferences to be drawn from the facts; (ii) holding that Plaintiffs failed to properly allege facts sufficient to establish demand futility; and (iii) holding that Plaintiffs didn’t adequately allege a Caremark claim.
  • 12:30 p.m. – Horbal v. Shapira – Plaintiffs/shareholders appeal the Court of Chancery’s (Laster) dismissal of their complaint with prejudice. Plaintiffs asserted breach of fiduciary duty claims against the directors of Seegrid Corp. and Seegrid’s largest shareholder and creditor, Giant Eagle. On appeal, Plaintiffs assert that the court erred in dismissing their complaint with prejudice based on collateral estoppel and lack of standing.

Please read the information on courtroom protocol.

Law library closed Memorial Day weekend

May 21st, 2015 No comments

The Widener Law Delaware Law Library will be closed this weekend for Memorial Day. We’ll reopen Tuesday May 26th. See our website for more information about library hours.

Check out the law library’s old exam archive

The number one question I’ve been getting since the website redesign is “where did the old exams go?” The exam archive couldn’t stay on the new website so we’ve moved it to TWEN. Once you’ve logged on to TWEN, go to “Add Course” and add yourself to the course called “Exam Archive – Delaware Law Library.”

Not all faculty member give us exams, so if you don’t see the exam you’re looking for check with your professor. Many of them are now posting old exams on their own course pages.
