Three Nominated for Vice Chancellor
Delaware's Judicial Nominating Commission, a panel tasked with screening candidates for judgeships in Delaware, has forwarded three candidates to Governor Jack Markell for his consideration as potential replacements for Vice Chancellor Lamb on the Court of Chancery. The three are:
- Mary Johnston, a former partner at Morris James and a Superior Court Judge since 2003;
- Richard Forsten, a partner at Saul Ewing;
- Travis Laster, a partner at Abrams & Laster.
Governor Markell is expected to forward one of these three names to the Delaware Senate for a confirmation vote that is expected to occur in September.
