Yesterday, Delaware Gov. John Carney nominated Justice Collins Seitz to serve as the Delaware Supreme Court’s next Chief Justice, replacing the departing Chief Justice Leo Strine. The Governor also nominated Vice Chancellor Tamika Montgomery-Reeves to take Seitz’s seat as an Associate Justice.
Justice Seitz has served on the Delaware Supreme Court since April 2015. VC Montgomery-Reeves has served on the Chancery Court since 2015 and is its first African-American member – and if her nomination is confirmed, she will also become the first African-American to serve on Delaware’s highest court.
