New Records Show Chancery Court Approved $400,000 in New Fees Billed to TransPerfect Despite No Legal Action, Adding to Millions Already Billed

Citizens for Judicial Fairness Slams the Chancery for Allowing Self-Dealing Lawyers to Continue Lining Their Pockets at Expense of TransPerfect Employees as Court Action Stalls and Case Goes Nowhere

Today, Citizens for Judicial Fairness campaign manager Chris Coffey issued the following statement after new financial records show the Delaware Chancery Court approved an additional whopping $400,000 in legal fees last quarter for its hand-picked custodian, former Skadden Arps attorney Robert Pincus, in the TransPerfect case – despite little legal action or progress in the suit over the past three months.

"Making a cool $400,000 for no work is a pretty sweet gig if you can get it – but tragically that's business-as-usual at the Delaware Court of Chancery, which acts more as a conveyor belt of cash for its legal cronies than a hallowed hall of justice. The latest payout goes to the Chancery Court's own hand-picked custodian in the TransPerfect case, former Skadden attorney Robert Pincus, and required virtually no legal action or court proceedings – just an insider connection to land a cushy appointment. And the Chancery Court has no qualms about bilking a successful, job-creating company and its hundreds of hard-working employees to line the pockets of its friends. While it's murky what work was actually done to earn $400,000, this much is clear: the fees aren't about the administration of justice or the disposition of a legal matter, they're nothing but a court-approved kickback."
