Strine To Be Sworn In As Delaware Chief Justice

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - Delaware's new chief justice will officially take over the reigns as head of the state's judiciary.
    
Leo Strine Jr. was to be sworn in Friday as Delaware's eighth chief justice in a courtroom ceremony in Wilmington.
    
Strine was to receive the oath of office from his predecessor, Myron Steele, who retired last year.
    
Gov. Jack Markell and U.S. Sen. Tom Carper were among those scheduled to attend the ceremony.
    
Strine has served since 1998 on Delaware's Court of Chancery, a nationally known venue for resolving disputes involving some of the world's largest companies, many of them incorporated in Delaware. He became head judge of that court in 2011.
    
Before becoming a judge, Strine worked as a corporate litigator and served as chief counsel to Carper when he was governor.
