Court of Chancery announces administrative updates
Delaware: The Delaware Court of Chancery has announced several changes to Court rules. An Amendment to Rule 3 increases some fees and reduces others, resulting in no change to net cost for litigants. The change does affect the time period in which fees must be made however, requiring payment up front rather than throughout the course of proceedings. The amendment also sets costs for proceedings under the Uniform Guardianship Act not previously provided for under the rules.
An Amendment to Rule 171 removes a requirement to provide paper copies of unpublished opinions cited in each brief to the Court. Instead, attorneys are asked to use their best judgement and give the Court a compendium of the authorities cited believed crucial to making a fair ruling in each case. This move is being made both to reduce the amount of paper before the Court's authorities and to the lessen the burden on the environment.
