Proctor v. Vishay Intertechnology Inc., No. 07-16527

By FindLaw Staff on October 12, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In a derivative action against a corporation's majority shareholder claiming that defendant misappropriated the company's assets and breached its fiduciary duties to the company and the other shareholders, dismissal of the action is affirmed in part where the action was subject to removal under the Securities Litigation Uniform Standards Act and removal was timely and procedurally proper.  However, the order is reversed in part where the district court erroneously gave effect to a Delaware state court injunction.
