The Delaware Senate recently confirmed Governor John Carney’s nominees to serve as the Chief Justice and Associate Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court. In October of 2019, former Associate Justice Collins Seitz, Jr. was nominated by the Governor to replace Leo. E. Strine, Jr. as the Chief Justice, in light of the latter’s retirement. Tamika Montgomery-Reeves, who previously served as a Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery since 2015, was nominated to replace Seitz’s seat as an Associate Justice, making her the first African American to serve on the Delaware Supreme Court. The State Senate voted unanimously to confirm the two nominees to the High Court.
