A: In Delaware, as in many jurisdictions, the grounds for a motion for reconsideration typically include several key reasons. These reasons can vary depending on the specific circumstances of each case and the applicable legal standards.

Common grounds for a motion for reconsideration include the discovery of new evidence that was not available during the original hearing, an error of law or fact in the court's decision, or a change in the law that affects the outcome of the case. These motions are also sometimes granted if there is a showing that the court's decision was based on a misunderstanding of the facts or the law.

However, it's important to understand that motions for reconsideration are generally not granted simply because a party is dissatisfied with the outcome. They are intended to correct clear errors or consider significant new information.

Compiling a comprehensive list of all reasons for approval of such motions, with citations, would require extensive legal research. For detailed and case-specific information, consulting legal databases or seeking the assistance of a legal professional is recommended. Remember, each case is unique, and understanding the specific legal context is crucial for an effective motion for reconsideration.
