judging delaware

Governor Minner made two judicial nominations on Friday. One will bring Vice-Chancellor Jack B. Jacobs to the Delaware Supreme Court. The other sees Family Court Associate Judge Chandlee Johnson Kuhn becoming the Chief Judge in Family Court.

The Wilmington News-Journal is overjoyed by the nomination of Vice Chancellor Jacobs, and explain why in an editorial in today's paper. I'd have to say that their analysis is spot-on.

The Governor's press release indicates when these nominees will be presented to the Senate for confirmation. From this vantage, it appears unlikely that there will be any controversy over the selections. Celia Cohen has a nice look at the nominees over at the Delaware Grapevine.
