Lendus, LLC v. Goede, C.A. No. 2018-0233-SG (Del. Ch. Dec. 10, 2018)

The Court of Chancery respects zealous advocacy, but demands professionalism and degrees of civility, among counsel and the parties.  Every few years a non-Delaware attorney admitted pro hac vice goes too far in aggressively representing his or her client in a Delaware litigation.  This decision discusses boundaries that should not be crossed, especially in a deposition.  Name calling, sarcasm, aggressive behavior, and other forms of bullying are not permitted and may result in the loss of the right to practice before the Court.
