Why have evidence or witnesses to make your case in Delaware’s $250 million TransPerfect fiasco? When your name is Kevin Shannon, and your friends are wearing the robes, in my opinion, you don’t need evidence or witnesses — cause you have the game rigged in your favor.
If this isn’t illegal, it surely ought to be. Frankly, I see this as a disgusting and disturbing view into how our Chancery Court apparently now works?
After following Andre Bouchard’s first couple of years, which I viewed as suspect, followed by his mismanagement of the TransPerfect Global case, I decided to Google the names of the folks involved in the case to see if my suspicions were correct. Were there actual conflicts of interest and personal connections?
Folks, please look at the boondoggling schedule I was able to come up with by doing that digging on Google: Kevin Shannon of Potter Anderson, with Andre Bouchard (well-documented BFF) and Leo Strine, in and around the 5 years of shame related to the TransPerfect case.
I could write a serious diatribe about how corrupt this appears to be, just by referencing the Delaware Judicial Cannons, which are clear and on point, but I will let the dates and facts speak for themselves. How dumb these people must think the Delaware public is??!
Folks, after looking at the facts, it is hard to fathom for me — and should be for any reasonable person — when seeing the incestuous relationships between these individuals and their conflicts of interest, that this judicial arrangement, which apparently is condoned by the Delaware Legislature, is just plain wrong!!!
To add insult to injury, for Bouchard and Strine, this boondoggling is on the tax- payers’ dime.
Look for yourself:

There you have it folks — clear evidence of these incestuous connections and when you put these relationships together with the actions of the same players combined with the rulings from Bouchard and Strine and then add the former business partner from Skadden Arps, Robert Pincus, into the mix as the appointed Custodian in the TransPerfect case, all working in unison to seemingly profit from the case. I cringe at the obvious appearances of impropriety and the possible corruption. There should be no doubt about the integrity of these Courts. Unfortunately, they are suspect and it is right in our faces!
I urge you to contact your legislators and tell them about your concerns! This will be an issue in the 2020 election.
