    We're screwed in the short term

    Regardless of how Parsons rules there will probably be another appeal. Appeals and the subsequent remands back to the chancery take time that PIP does not have given BARDA's decision to pull the plug.

    Bouchard Nominated to Lead Chancery Court

    by nicehedges Mar 20, 2014 3:01 PM

    The Delaware General Assembly unanimously voted to confirm attorney Andre G. Bouchard as chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery. Bouchard was confirmed after a seven-minute hearing where he was asked about his private investments and how cases are distributed among the court’s judges.
    Only five members of the Senate’s Executive Committee attended the hearing. However, all 21 senators unanimously voted to confirm Bouchard after the Senate reconvened later this afternoon.
    Bouchard was joined by his wife, son and fellow partners at his law firm, Bouchard Margules & Friedlander.
    The hearing began with Bouchard describing his background, noting that he has been a Delaware resident since 1969. He called it a "great honor" to be nominated and detailed his qualifications for the position.
    "The key thing I bring to this position is 28 years of practicing before this court," he said. "I have experienced the full range of what is handled by the Court of Chancery. It is a highly important position and one I would be very happy to have."
    Bouchard said he was cognizant of the court's role in the lives of everyday Delaware residents as well as the state's corporate citizens.
    Sen. F. Gary Simpson, R-Milford, started the questioning by asking Bouchard about his investments in public companies. The senator asked Bouchard if owning stock in companies that could appear before him as a judge violated the Delaware Code of Judicial Conduct.
    Bouchard responded that judges typically have investment portfolios and that nothing in the state's judicial ethics code prohibited him from doing so. He added that if an entity appeared before him and he was a shareholder, he would recuse himself and disclose the potential conflict to both parties.
    "I would recuse entirely or make the disclosure to the parties,” he said. “Out of an exercise of caution, I am prepared to do so."
    Bouchard noted that he only owned stock in about 30 or 40 public companies and invested in a few funds, so it would be a very small fraction among all of Delaware’s corporate entities. He added that very few of the companies have been involved in cases before the Chancery Court.
    "There are five vice chancellors and only one or two of the companies [I invested in] have had conflicts in the Court of Chancery over the last several years," Bouchard said, adding that he could always reassign a case to another judge if he was concerned about a conflict.
    Bouchard said that in recent Chancery Court litigation, Vice Chancellor J. Travis Laster had to disclose that his brother-in-law worked for one of the parties. Neither party had any objection to Laster overseeing the case, after he acknowledged the relationship, according to Bouchard.
    Sen. Gregory F. Lavelle, R-Sharpley, asked Bouchard to explain how a chancellor divides cases among the court's vice chancellors. Bouchard responded by explaining the procedural nature of case assignments.
    Lavelle followed up by pondering if a party has ever challenged a chancellor’s decision to assign a case to a vice chancellor. Bouchard said that he had never seen a challenge raised during his time practicing before the Chancery Court and was unsure if it had ever occurred.

    Interesting. ..thanks for sharing tla.

  • Gov. Jack Markell has nominated Andre G. Bouchard to become the next Delaware Court of Chancery chancellor. Bouchard, the managing partner of Bouchard Margules & Friedlander, was widely viewed as the front-runner for the vacancy, created when former Chancellor Leo E. Strine Jr. was promoted to state Supreme Court chief justice.

    Probably more uninformed reporting or a translational issue. http://m.allafrica.com/stories/201403041314.html/

    While listed, they don't seem to be available for purchase there. I am seeing them available for purchase on other sites like gofastandlightDOTcom. 159.89 will get you a UF-30L or UF-40L

    Upcoming Conference Call

    by hosaquavas Feb 11, 2014 12:45 PM

    Jerry, excellent thread. I had similar thoughts regarding the previous conference call and I think you are on the right track in believing that a Dengue partner is in the works. I also think you characterized Rose perfectly. For a company with sensitive government relationships, that also happens to be in full defense mode during a legal proceeding that will make or break its future, Rose is doing exactly what he needs to do, by talking the least amount possible about what the company is doing. Unfortunately, as investors in this company we are in a difficult position of being stuck in this information blackout. For some here, it is convenient to attack rose. It makes them feel better about the decision they made to invest in this company in the first place..

  • 2014 Winter Drill Program Commences at South Tally Pond, Newfoundland
    - Drill testing of the newly discovered Northwest zone

    VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Jan 29, 2014 - Canadian Zinc Corporation is pleased to announce the commencement of a winter diamond drill program at the Company's wholly-owned South Tally Pond zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold project in central Newfoundland. The planned drill program will consist of eight to ten drillholes, totaling 3,000 metres.

    The 2014 winter drill program will follow up on favourable results from the 2013 drill programs, which totaled 8,300 metres in 26 drillholes at the Lemarchant deposit. Highlights of the 2013 drilling programs include the discovery of Northwest zone located 250 metres to the northwest of the Lemarchant deposit and further extensions to the Lemarchant deposit (see Company news release dated December 11, 2013 and April 17, 2013).

    Priority drill targets for 2014 include testing for additional massive sulphide mineralization to expand the newly discovered Northwest zone and expanding the known Indicated and Inferred resources of the Lemarchant deposit. The 2014 program is fully supported by funds from the $4 million flow-through financing, which closed on August 20th, 2013.

    More than one sentence....

    "Andre G. Bouchard, a partner with Bouchard Margules & Friedlander and current chairman of the Judicial Nominating Commission, is viewed as a front-runner to replace Strine."

  • Mick Davis, the former chief executive officer of Xstrata Plc, is seeking to raise at least $3 billion from investors before he starts buying mines for his X2 Resources, according to people with knowledge of his plans.

    Davis, who has so far raised $1 billion, is targeting mines already in operation or close to producing, said the people, asking not to be identified because the plans aren’t public. Davis may initially limit the number of investors in X2 to six or seven, with each providing $500 million, they said.

    The South African born 55-year-old is looking to repeat his success at Xstrata, where he led the management team that took the coal producer from a company with a $500 million market capitalization to one valued at $50 billion through a decade of mergers, acquisitions and expansion. Davis favors copper, coal or zinc assets for X2, the people said.

    X2 could target deals valued at $12 billion to $15 billion after raising debt on top of the funds it gets directly from investors, the people said. Davis declined to comment.
