Delaware Chancellor Andre Bouchard is on the verge of creating an international incident for the United States.

Chancellor Bouchard is forever tarnishing the Delaware brand around the globe by his capricious, and in my opinion, illegal handling of the TransPerfect case. Bouchard’s “Implementation Order,” according to the Barcelona newspaper below, violates Spanish law.
With a 25% unemployment rate in Spain, apparently any merger or acquisition of this magnitude inevitably results in the loss of jobs. Under Spanish law, before any merger or acquisition can be contemplated — much less thrusted into an auction process — an in-depth study is required on how it will affect the employees. And if this is the law for Spain, it would not surprise me if each and every European country where TransPerfect operates (about 20 countries) have similar laws.  Chancellor Bouchard, how do you say “I’m a Loco Gringo Judge” in Spanish?  If this Order does in fact break Spanish law, I will be shouting from the mountain-tops for your impeachment (and don’t say later that you weren’t on notice, because you are on my email list).


The Chancellor and his designated henchman, Custodian Bob Pincus have shown their real-world inexperience and naivety, and it is magnified ten-fold when dealing with the complex issue of global business and European employment law. How is it that a former Delaware River Pilot and former Lewes City Councilman like me can see that Delaware’s court system has fleeced this company out of $100 million, is destroying our state’s business-friendly reputation worldwide and threatens our entire economy while raising the dark shadow of possible corruption… and no one in Delaware seems to care??
I for one want to see the reputation of Delaware saved and restored to its former glory, and the negative publicity that Chancellor Bouchard is creating erased, as it is the greatest immediate threat to our already weak economy!!
See the story I’m referring to here:

This battery of legal measures would be out of power and influence Bouchard is an “overreach its powers”, say experts, recalling that Robert Pincus, judicial administrator appointed by Bouchard for this transition period would be acting as if “under the order issued by judge implementation, workers in Spain were under his supervision and order,” which is contrary to law.
Under this tax, remember, Barcelona Transperfect workers are required to contribute to the risk of sanction the sale of the company and can not do evaluations, despite knowing the consequences it could have for the center of the Catalan capital.
