FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - August 15, 2023 -

Chancellor Kathaleen St. J. McCormick’s Temporary Absence

Chancellor Kathaleen St. J. McCormick has taken time off for surgery on her spine. The Court of Chancery anticipates the Chancellor returning to her duties by the end of September 2023. Court operations are not expected to be unduly affected by the Chancellor’s absence. “I want to thank all my judicial colleagues and the court staff while I take time to address medical issues and I know the court will be in good hands until my return,” she said. In general, all matters that the Chancellor took under advisement prior to her leave will be resolved on a slightly extended timeline. Cases that are lacking urgency will remain on the Chancellor’s docket and will be monitored by the Chancellor’s colleagues. Pressing matters will be reassigned to other judicial officers as the need arises. All parties involved in cases that are reassigned will be notified by the court. Chancellor McCormick was first appointed to the Court of Chancery as a Vice Chancellor in November 2018 and was elevated to the position of Chancellor in May 2021, becoming the first woman to lead the Court in its 231-year history. The Delaware Court of Chancery is widely recognized for its expertise in matters of business law and is regarded as the nation’s preeminent forum for the resolution of disputes involving the internal affairs of the hundreds of thousands of corporations and other business entities that are incorporated in this state.
