March 18 — The Delaware Senate March 18 unanimously confirmed the nomination of corporate attorney Collins J. “C.J.” Seitz Jr. to the state's high court.
On Feb. 23 Delaware Gov. Jack Markell (D) announced Seitz's nomination to replace Justice Henry duPont Ridgely, who retired effective Jan. 31.
In a statement about the confirmation posted online, Gov. Markell said “[d]uring his legal career of more than three decades, C.J. Seitz has earned a well-deserved reputation for excellence, integrity, and civility,” adding that “I have every confidence that he will serve our state with distinction as a member of Delaware’s highest court.”
Seitz most recently was a partner at Seitz, Ross, Aronstam & Moritz LLP, a Delaware firm, where he specialized in litigating corporate and other complex commercial cases.
Seitz received his B.A. from the University of Delaware in 1980 and his J.D. from Villanova University School of Law in 1983; he was admitted to the Delaware Bar the same year.
Seitz will become the fourth new justice added to the high court since Feb. 2014. Justice Ridgely joined DLA Piper March 16.
In October 2014, the Delaware General Assembly unanimously confirmed state superior court Judge James T. Vaughn, Jr. to fill the vacancy left by Justice Carolyn Berger, who retired in September.
Justice Karen L. Valihura was sworn in July 2014 to replace Justice Jack Jacobs, who retired effective a month earlier.
In February 2014, Leo E. Strine, Jr. was sworn in as the eighth chief justice of the court, replacing Chief Justice Myron Steele, who led the court from May 2005 until his retirement in November 2013.
