DOVER, Del.– The Delaware Senate confirmed nominations for three open judicial positions as well as nominations for re-appointment for three others.

The Senate confirmed Tamika Montgomery-Reeves as Vice Chancellor of the Court of Chancery, succeeding Vice Chancellor Donald F. Parsons, Jr.

“Tamika is an accomplished corporate lawyer whose experience and passion for service will be a tremendous asset on Delaware’s Court of Chancery,” said Governor Markell. “I thank the members of the Senate for showing their support.”

Jennifer Ranji was confirmed to serve as a judge on the Delaware Family Court, replacing Judge William L. Chapman Jr., who announced plans to retire and return to private practice earlier this month. 

“Jennifer has dedicated her career to improving the lives of others, making her an excellent addition to Delaware’s Family Court,” said Governor Markell. “I thank the members of the Senate for considering her nomination and I’m confident she will continue to serve the children and families of Delaware well in her new role.”    

The Senate confirmed Danielle Blount to serve as a commissioner on the Delaware Family Court. She will succeed Commissioner Mary Ann Herlihy, who is set retire from state service at the end of this month.

“Danielle’s courtroom experience as well as her intense knowledge of and passion for the issues impacting our most vulnerable citizens have earned her the respect of her colleagues and members of the community she serves,” said Governor Markell. “I have every confidence she will serve our state well as a member of the Delaware Family Court and thank the Senate for confirming her nomination.”

The Senate also confirmed three judicial officers for re-appointment:  Superior Court Judge Mary Johnston, Family Court Judge Arlene Coppadge, and Justice of the Peace Court Chief Magistrate Alan Davis. 

“Today’s reappointments by the Senate of three respected members of Delaware’s courts speak to the quality of our judiciary,” said Governor Markell. “I am confident each of them will continue to serve with distinction and appreciate the Senate’s consideration.”
