that, and their body of case law/precedent is highly developed as opposed to just statutes; also Delaware judges that hear these corp cases/disputes are very sophisticated in corp law matters. This matters b/c of jurisdictional rules of civil procedure, and a lot of big corporate law cases take place in Delaware because they are Delaware corporations. Basically big companies know when they incorporate in Delaware they won't get some yokel judge interpreting unfavorable law without a lot of precedent to go on.
Its called former Senator Biden. The Federal bankrupcy laws favor Delaware. Delaware also has favorable laws as mentioned above. Its also cheap and easy to incorporate there, and coorporate taxes are minimal.
Sesport, Mobil Corporation was incorporated in Delaware.
And why do you think Exxon bought out Cross Timbers XTO?

XTO was running out of money is my guess.

Ditto here.. $3 gas ain't cutting the mustard.
