The Delaware Court of Chancery, in Robert O. Carr v. Global Payments, Inc., et al., C.A. No. 2018-0565-SG, memo. op. (Del. Ch. Dec. 11, 2019), permitted modification of a prior advancement order, finding plaintiff still not entitled advancement because the amended claim did not pertain to his former service as an officer and director once allegations that he used confidential information gained during that service were removed. The Chancery Daily notes that a Oct. 31, 2018 decision in this matter, which originally addressed defendants’ motion to modify the advancement order, was withdrawn in connection with a motion for reargument. This Dec. 11, 2019 decision finally resolves defendants’ motion to modify.
