Makitka, Jr., et al. v. New Castle County Council, et al.
This case involved a challenge to the New Castle County Council's approval of the record plan for a housing development. The development was the joint effort of two record owners of individual parcels: the limited liability companies, Robinson Investments, LLC, and Robinson Investments Two, LLC. Plaintiffs, however, did not name Robinson Investments, LLC, as a party, and defendants moved to dismiss because of plaintiffs' failure to join an indispensable party. Because of the time limitations embodied in 10 Del. C. 8126, joinder of Robinson Investments, LLC, was not precluded. Therefore, if Robinson Investments, LLC, was an indispensable party, the action would be dismissed with prejudice. Consequently, the court found that Robinson Investments, LLC, was an indispensable party to the action and granted defendants' motion to dismiss. View "Makitka, Jr., et al. v.
