In the recent opinion of Geier v. Mozido, LLC, C.A. No. 10931-VCS (Del. Ch. Sept. 29, 2016), Vice Chancellor Slights dismissed the complaint because the claims sought therein were previously released due to a previous settlement.  The Court provides a thorough yet concise discussion of the applicable tenets of contract construction relating to the releases at issue.  The Court then interpreted the unambiguous language of the settlement and release language to find that the claims asserted were barred.  The motions to dismiss were therefore granted.
