Mehta v. Kaazing Corp.Annotate this Case
Plaintiff, a stockholder of Kaazing Corporation (Defendant), filed this 8 Del. C. 220 action seeking to inspect certain books and records of Defendant. Plaintiff argued that his proper purposes seeking inspection of twenty-six categories of documents were to value his membership interest in Defendant and the investigation of mismanagement, waste or wrongdoing. The Court of Chancery held (1) Plaintiff adequately demonstrated a credible basis to suspect wrongdoing that justified further investigation into mismanagement, and therefore, Plaintiff demonstrated proper purposes; and (2) Plaintiff was entitled to inspect some, but not all, of the books and records he sought.
