CBS Renews NAI Fight, Seeks Court Approval of Dilution Vote

Posted: May 23, 2018 1:01 PM Updated:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- CBS Corp. is asking a judge to bless a move by its board to dilute the stock voting power of its controlling shareholder, the latest step in an ongoing legal battle for control of the mass media company.           

In a court filing Wednesday, CBS asked a Delaware judge to rule a board vote last week that would reduce the voting stake of National Amusement Inc. was "effective and permissible." The special dividend approved by the board would decrease NAI's stake from 80 percent to 17 percent           

NAI decreed before the vote that any dividend must be approved by a "supermajority" of its 14-member board, a threshold that was not met.           

NAI, led by the daughter of media mogul Sumner Redstone, has called the board vote "pure pretext."           

CBS argues that NAI's purported bylaw amendments are invalid.

    Progress on Bowers Beach Drainage Project at Mercy of the Tides

    Wrapping up the major replacement of a drainage system beneath an oft-flooded in Bowers Beach has proved to be a slower process than some town officials and neighbors have hoped for.

    A new drainage pipe has recently replaced a smaller and older one beneath Hubbard Avenue, a frequent spot for flooding after heavy rain. The system is intended to help flood waters disperse more quickly into the Murderkill River.
