This motion comes just days after the CPBD released a new television ad urging Delawareans to contact their elected officials to support the TransPerfect Bill which would require a three-year 'work it out' period before the Chancery Court can order the sale of a solvent company in deadlock. The ad features TransPerfect employees who have been silenced by the courts through out judicial proceedings in The Delaware Court of Chancery has ordered the sale of the global translation services company. Senator Colin Bonini, who is working with CPBD on the Bill and has continued to support CPBD's efforts, also submitted an opposition to closing the courtroom.
"Public confidence in the courts quickly erodes when judicial proceedings are kept clandestine," Senator Bonini's lawyer wrote in the letter she submitted to the Delaware court. The Senator "has a long history of advocating for transparency in the government, and has been following this matter closely, as it presents issues that are important to his constituency."
Citizens for a Pro-Business Delaware is a group made up of more than 2,200 members including employees of the global translation services company TransPerfect, as well as concerned Delaware residents, business executives, and others. They formed in April 2016 to focus on raising awareness among Delaware residents, elected officials, and other stakeholders about the issue.
