In the recent bench ruling entered in Harrison v. Quivus Systems LLC, C.A. 12084-VCMR (April 7, 2016), Vice Chancellor Montgomery-Reeves ruled that discovery into the reasonableness of fees sought in an advancement case will be postponed until after the Court first determines that plaintiff has established a right to advancement.

This is an important ruling for any litigant to an advancement action in terms of the allowable scope of discovery prior to the Court’s determination that advancement is warranted.
