CFPB challenger to SCOTUS: Let Congress fix bureau’s constitutional flaw

Both the Justice Department and a debt relief law firm challenging the constitutionality of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau argued in briefs this week that the U.S. Supreme Court need not kill off the bureau because of criticisms that its unique structure violates separation of powers doctrine. But the two sides offered the justices quite different proposed remedies for the alleged constitutional flaw.

Oracle board committee must turn over documents to shareholder lawyers - Delaware judge

In a ruling issued Wednesday night, Vice-Chancellor Samuel Glasscock of Delaware Chancery Court had some linguistic fun with the novelty of a derivative case he’s overseeing. The case alleges that Oracle directors breached their duties when they approved the acquisition of NetSuite, a company controlled by Oracle chair Larry Ellison, at a huge premium over NetSuite’s trading price.

How to pick lead counsel, Judge Alsup-style
