Legal news site Law360 ran this analysis [$$$] of Aruba, focusing on whether the decision should be seen as a fight between valuation methodologies, or between two courts trying to fulfill their respective roles. The Chancery Court, left to apply the Delaware Supreme Court’s precedent to complex fact situations and manage cases from their infancy through decision, may be struggling with the Dell and DFC decisions. The Supreme Court, perhaps reconsidering some of the positions it held as law in Dell and DFC, is left to ‘police’ the lower court as that court struggles to apply sometimes conflicting rules and views.

As the diverse reactions to Aruba consider, no doubt scholars will analyze the decision (and decisions still to come) as part of both the evolution of appraisal law, but also in how lower courts and higher courts interact.
