The number of jurists on the Delaware Court of Chancery was recently increased from five to seven by legislation. Today, the Governor nominated the two new vice chancellors for Delaware’s equity court, and they now will be considered by the Delaware Senate. A local Delaware publication at this link provides details about the two nominees: Morgan Zurn, who is currently a Master in Chancery, and Kathaleen McCormick, a Delaware corporate litigator. (Yes, that is how her first name is spelled. Get used to it.) I expect that their confirmation hearings in the Delaware Senate will not follow the circus-like atmosphere that seems to have prevailed in the “extended” U.S. Senate committee hearings for the nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court.
