DGCL Sec. 144

The following provision of the statute provides a safe harbor for interested director transactions. If the requirements of the safe harbor are complied with then an interested director transaction will not be void or voidable because of the participation of the director. It may still, however, be subject to attack as a violation of the duty of loyalty and the interested director may be required to prove the entire fairness of the transaction.
