CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 19 - March 25, 2004 - 53 Grant funds clinic for low-income taxpayers U.S. Sen. Joseph R. Biden re- cently announced Legal Services Corporation of Delaware Inc., has received a $20,000 grant from the Internal Rev- enue Service to fund a low-in- come taxpayer clinic. The clinic will op- erate year- round from the Legal Services BIDEN Offices in Wilmington and Dover, providing representa- U.S. chamber tion and other assistance to low income Delawareans who have controversies or disputes regard- ing their federal taxes. "This office will be a great ben- efit to hard-working families in Delaware that are dealing with complicated tax issues without the financial capacity to hire an attor- ney," said Biden. "As more and more families transition from welfare to work, they are confronted - often for the first time - with complicated and confusing tax matters. This grant will help low income Delaware- ranks Delaware's legal system best The U.S. Chamber of Com- merce's annual poll of corporate counselors and senior litigators has once again found Delaware's legal system is the best in the na- tion. Delaware officials said the poll, conducted by Harris Interac- tive and unveiled at a press confer- ence in Washington, D.C., March 9, provides further encouragement for businesses to locate and incor- porate in Delaware. This is the third consecutive year Delaware has ranked first in the survey that asks respondents to grade all 50 states based on treat- ment of class-action suits, punitive damages, timeliness of summary judgment/dismissal, discovery, scientific and technical evidence, judges' impartiality and compe- tence, and juries' fairness and pre- dictability. "Companies prefer to operate and expand in locations that have a fair, efficient and predictable le- gal environment," said Gov. Ruth Ann Minner. " As governor, I have worked with the General Assembly and our courts to ensure Delaware's continued preeminence in busi- ness law by reauthorizing the Judi- cial Nominating Commission, ex- panding the jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery and funding new courtrooms in all three coun- ties." "The judicial branch of Delaware government is extreme- ly pleased and gratified that our courts rank No. 1 in the nation in the quality of our litigation sys- tem," said Delaware Chief Justice E. Norman Veasey. "The Superior Court deserves the principal credit for this rank- ing, but all of our courts have consistently been recog- VEASEY nized by peo- ple inside and outside of Delaware. The Court of Chancery and the Supreme Court are inter- nationally preeminent in the cor- porate area, while the Family Court, the Court of Common Pleas and the Justice of the Peace Court continue on a daily basis to demonstrate excellence." "Delaware's No. 1 ranking en- hances and supports our reputa- tion as a business-friendly state,' said Delaware State Chamber of Commerce President and CEO James A. Wolfe. " "Our member companies know that Delaware is a great place to do business. It's great to see that validated by such an institution as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation's largest federation of businesses." More than half a million busi- ness entities have their legal home in Delaware, including more than 50 percent of all U.S. publicly traded companies and 58 percent of the Fortune 500.

Biden for his assistance in obtain- ing this grant, so that we could continue with and expand our services to working families in Delaware," said Douglas B. Can- field, executive director of Legal Services Corporation of Delaware Inc. "There are other programs, such as VITA volunteers, and earned-income tax clinics to help low income families with tax re- turn preparation, but this is the on- ly program in the state of Delaware which provides legal representation regarding tax prob- lems."
