Loewenstein on Good Faith

The Diverging Meaning of Good Faith, by Mark Loewenstein, University of Colorado Law School, was recently posted on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

This article explores the meaning of "good faith" in the context of corporations and unincorporated entities. The courts, particularly in Delaware, have developed two different approaches. In the corporate arena, the courts are fashioning a notion of good faith that seems to require an examination of director motivations. In the unincorporated arena, good faith has a meaning grounded in contract law. These are two different concepts and reflect the fundamental differences between corporations and unincorporated entities, with the former based on fiduciary duties and the latter on contract. There are, however, indications that this "divergence" is starting to disappear, and this article discusses that trend as well.
