The Anything-But-Wonderful World of Disney: A Look at the In Re Walt Disney Co. Derivative Litigation and the Ensuing Trial, Brehm v. Eisner
3.0 hours CLE credit
DSB05162018THE_A
It has been 20 years since the Delaware Court of Chancery began wrestling with this famous case and its powerful players in an action that centered on a corporate board’s decision to approve a $140 million dollar severance to the company’s outgoing President, Michael Ovitz. At issue here were numerous corporate law questions involving bad faith, board oversight, and equity. Reassembled for this anniversary series seminar are many of the players who debated the issues and tried to avoid the intense media attention, including the Chancellor who wrote the opinion, a justice who heard the appeal, and most of the original party counsel to discuss the history of this case, the thoughts behind the opinions and what Disney’s impact on corporate law has been.

This year, the Superior Court will once more conduct its annual Mediators’ Training Program through the DSBA. If you are interested in mediating civil cases for Superior Court, you must complete this training. The Court has also adopted a recertification plan where your mediation certification through the Court will need a refresher course after 7 years. A refresher course is available to view online at www.dsba.org/cle. Mediation is often considered the most effective method of Alternative Dispute Resolution. This will be your opportunity to be added to the list of certified mediators by DSBA and the Superior Court. Registrants for this training will receive instruction in all aspects of mediation including acting as a neutral, confidentiality, mediation ethics, crafting and writing agreements, and much more. This training will include general mediation techniques and methods, and will have experienced mediators working with attendees on the last day of training. Note: Registrants must commit to all three days of training. Due to the nature of mediation training, we will not be able to provide a video for missed days and to be certified, one must take the full three-day training.

Movie Night at DSBA 2018 - Confirmation (NEW DATE)
1.0 hour CLE credit
DSB09132018MOVIE
In the movie, "Confirmation," Judge Clarence Thomas's nomination to the United States Supreme Court is called into question when Anita Hill, a former colleague, testifies that he sexually harassed her. In the wake of the sexual abuse scandals coming out of Hollywood, the political arena, the media, the literary world, and the hospitality industry, this movie cannot be more timely. Social media is abuzz with #metoo and unwanted sexual conduct can lead to legal ramifications. Toward the end of the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, sexual harassment allegations by Anita Hill, a law professor who had previously worked under Thomas at the United States Department of Education and then at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), were leaked to the media from a confidential FBI report. The allegations led to a media frenzy and further investigations. Televised hearings were re-opened and held by the Senate Judiciary Committee before the nomination was moved to the full Senate for a vote. Thomas was confirmed by a narrow majority of 52 to 48.
