Eric Rasmussen notes that:
I just read about Freedman v. Adams, 2012 Del. Ch. LEXIS 74, at *45-46 (Del. Ch. Mar. 30, 2012) at Taxprof and the original discussion by Prof. Hemel at the Chicago Law blog. It's a good example of a corporate law case, the kind of situation good for an exam, perhaps. Part of it is about whether the shareholder plaintiff should get a million dollars in "legal fees" (quantum meruit would be vastly smaller, another issue) because the directors paid unnecessary taxes by using a thoughtless compensation plan.
I wrote a long post on this issue back in 2012.
