Just so we don’t forget
No, at least in Delaware. And I suspect everywhere else.
Blogger Jim Hamilton noted:
A corporation is an artificial being, the court said, and having no mind, it must rely on the facilities of natural persons. Lacking a voice, the court continued, a corporation cannot testify. Lacking a mind , it cannot possess personal knowledge. Without a conscience, it cannot take an oath. “And because of its incorporeal nature, it cannot even meet Delaware’s statutory requirement that a person taking an oath do so ‘with the uplifted hand,’” the court concluded.
I would have thought this was self evident and am surprised that it went to the Delaware Chancery Court.
