the integrity and effectiveness of judicial review of corporate conduct. And, Justice Moore almost single-handedly established one of the most important venues for such sharing: the annual Corporate Law Institute at his alma mater, Tulane Law School. That conference has been characterized as the equivalent in corporate law of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Justice Moore did not achieve any of this by reticence or slackness. When appearing before him in court or otherwise, one could expect that he had fully absorbed the relevant factual record, and that he would not quietly suffer statements or misstatements from anyone who had not. And, when he encountered unethical or slack behavior in corporate directors, he did not shy away from pointing it out (most notably, he incisively characterized the directors of Macmillan as “torpid, if not supine” in their supervision of the process by which that company was sold). Above all else, though, Justice Moore was proud to be a Delaware lawyer, and appreciated the unique standards of conduct and integrity to which Delaware lawyers aspire. Even the targets of harsh questioning by him during oral arguments must stand back and admire Justice Moore’s extensive positive contributions to Delaware law and practice.
