Delaware Corporate Law Update

Updates on Delaware Corporate Law by Evan O. Williford, Esq., Delaware Corporate Litigation Attorney.

Strine And Glasscock Nominated

The word is out — current Court of Chancery Vice Chancellor Leo E. Strine, Jr. and Master Sam Glasscock have been nominated by the Governor to be Chancellor and Vice Chancellor, respectively. Since the Delaware Senate’s term ends on June 30, votes on their confirmation will likely occur before then.

Further Update on Appointment of New Chancellor

It has been reported by the Delaware Grapevine (here) that the three names forwarded by the Judicial Nominating Committee to the Governor with respect to the next Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery are: Karen L. Valihura, Esquire, a partner practicing corporate litigation at Skadden Arps; Leo E. Strine Jr., a Vice Chancellor of the Court of Chancery; and Sam Glasscock III, a Master of the Court of Chancery.  The Governor would most likely pick one of the three candidates recommended to him by the committee, and the pick would then be forwarded to the state Senate for confirmation proceedings.
