William Schuman was quoted in the February issue of CFO in an article on a recent Delaware Supreme Court decision regarding director liability. Ruling in the case Stone v. Ritter, the court stated that the complainants must prove directors "knew that they were not discharging their fiduciary obligations." Mr. Schuman said, "Proving simple negligence is not going to be enough. What [the Delaware court] is looking for is something very close to intent. It's a really tough standard to meet."
