Yet Another in Recent String of UF Law Successes

The Justice Campbell Thornal Moot Court Team placed second in the Ruby R. Vale National Corporate Law Competition in Delaware, March 14-17. LeAnn Davis, Jason Gonzalez and John Perry represented the law school, coached by Robert Thornburg and assistant coaches Ryan Cardoso, Danet Rodriguez, Kate Bedell and Scott Underwood. Florida was one of 20 teams at the competition — held at Widener University College of Law in Wilmington — and the only team from a southeastern college of law. As a finalist, Florida argued before members of the Delaware Supreme Court and Court of Chancery — widely recognized as the nation’s preeminent forum for determination of corporate disputes. Judges were Delaware corporate law experts (academic and practicing attorneys) — including attorneys that argued seminal Delaware cases before the top Delaware courts. Florida argued six times during the competition, alternating sides (appellant/appellee) each round. After competing against William & Mary, Wisconsin and DePaul, Florida ranked in the top eight. They then defeated Seton Hall and Toledo to earn a match-up against Marquette in the final round, which UF lost arguing off-brief. The competition required the team to master difficult, cutting-edge Delaware corporate law issues concerning statutory restrictions and minority shareholder valuation in interested party cashout mergers.
