Governor Jack Markell has nominated Delaware lawyer Travis Laster to fill the vacancy on the Delaware Chancery Court. Here is the story in the local paper. Here  is a prior post on the selection process. The Delaware Senate is expected to convene a special session in September to confirm the nomination. Travis Laster is an experienced and well-respected veteran corporate litigator who frequently appeared before the court that he will now be a member of, and he will continue the long tradition of nationally recognized excellence among the jurists of that court.
