In this episode of CorpCast we go back to basics on the concept of the controlling stockholder. We address what constitutes a controlling stockholder under Delaware Law, discuss the idea of “actual control,” and consider how the presence of a controlling stockholder affects the Court’s standard of review.  We’ll also discuss recent case law developments including In re KKR Financial Holdings, LLC, In re Crimson Exploration, Inc., and In re Sanchez Energy.
