Sometimes, good guys win, folks.
I’ll explain, but first some background: I spend a decent amount of time each month keeping you updated on the ongoing saga of the TransPerfect case in Delaware, and what I see as the unprecedented, subjective and capricious rulings by Chief Chancellor Andre Bouchard.
In my view, this case features Bouchard attempting a governmental “Taking” of the Shawes’ private property (not only according to me, but the lone female Delaware Supreme Court Justice Valihura in her dissenting opinion) in violation of the 5th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. More recently, it has featured battles over Bouchard giving his former law firm Skadden Arps what I see as a blind blank check to raid TransPerfect’s corporate bank account.
I could go on and on (and I often do!). But let’s take a moment to celebrate one of America’s great entrepreneurial, success stories, overcoming not only the Chancellor’s best efforts to put them out of business, but also beating global competitors!
Amazingly, the company is on track to top $750 million in sales for the year and Chief Executive Philip Shawe says they “anticipate finishing the year strong”. Given my view of all the Chancery’s wildly fabricated tales of “dysfunction;” given all the court’s moves, in my opinion, designed to methodically empty the company’s bank account of over $250 million; and given the 3-year, illegal occupation of a Skadden Arps’ lawyer as a fake CEO — it is truly amazing TransPerfect is still alive, much less kicking butt!
Read the results below and rejoice at this American success story, even in this day and age, the good guys can still win one once in while. Please send your thoughts! Always enjoy emails and feedback from you.
