ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) - On the night before the latest vote on the Dell buyout, a lawsuit was filed.
In a court filing in Delaware, court investor Carl Icahn and his affiliates want no new record date, which would allow those who have bought shares since the first record date to vote on any deal.
The suit would also stop the Dell board from changing voting requirements and seek damages from not only Dell Incorporated, but it's Board of Directors for any losses caused by the company and it's board.
Icahn doesn't want a new record date for the higher $13.75 a share offer recently proposed by CEO Michael Dell since last week.
Friday's vote is for the original $24.4 billion buyout offer.
On Thursday, Dell stock closed up at $12.95 a share, which is still less than what Michael Dell wants to buy it back for.
The vote at Dell's Round Rock headquarters has already been delayed twice.
