The photo below is of the front of the New Castle County Courthouse in Wilmington where the Delaware Chancery Court presides on the top floor.
In light of the focus of this blog including the summary of key Chancery Court cases, it is appropriate to show readers one of the three public locations where the work of the court is done. The photo is courtesy of my daughter, Gianna, and was taken on Sunday, Feb. 11, 2007. The New Castle County Courthouse is the workspace for other Delaware courts also. There are separate courthouses in Kent County and Sussex County where the Chancery Court hears cases. Courtesy of Gordon Smith, we have a photo of the classic Chancery Court Courthouse in Georgetown, Sussex County:
I plan to post photos in the future of the Delaware Supreme Court building in Dover as well as the Courthouse in Kent County where the Chancery Court also hears cases.
As an aside, at about the end of January, I was up to date with my highlights of the cases published by the courts I cover on this blog, but to give you an idea of how prolific the Chancery Court and Supreme Court are in Delaware, within the last 2 weeks or so, the courts have issued about 20 decisions/opinions, which I would roughly estimate to be approximately 1,000 pages of scholarly text and copious footnotes that I need to read and highlight for this blog. I hope to be up to date again by the end of this weekend or shortly thereafter.
