No Equity In Lawyer Suing Lawyer Case

In a matter involving lawyers who "briefly shared" office space, the Delaware Court of Chancery issued a letter opinion declining to exercise equity jurisdiction to retain the case.

The case arises from a bar discipline we reported previously.

The defendant had attempted to bar the plaintiff from the office and falsely reported a "hostage situation" to the police, leading to the arrest of the plaintiff.

This litigation initially sought tort damages and equitable relief. It lay fallow for extended period. The Chancellor noted that the present complaint involves counts "sounding in tort or contract, for which full relief is available at law." (Mike Frisch)
