On October 12th, the Delaware Chancery Court dismissed a lawsuit challenging Goldman Sachs' compensation practices. Plaintiffs filed a shareholder derivative lawsuit alleging that the directors of Goldman Sachs violated their fiduciary duties by creating a compensation structure that encouraged inappropriate risk taking. The Court held that even if true, the allegations support only a conclusion that the directors made poor business decisions. The Court therefore dismissed the suit for failure to plead demand futility. In re Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. Shareholder Litigation
