22 Pettyjohn JSC

State Sen. Brian Pettyjohn, R-Georgetown, has been named to serve on the new Judicial Strategies Committee.

The JSC is charged with developing and implementing the long-term strategic planning approach of the Delaware Courts. Part of that will be focusing on legislative and policy-oriented solutions to outstanding issues.

The JSC was created by Chief Justice Leo E. Strine, Jr., July 1, 2015, following a long history of Chief Justices creating committees to support and improve the court system in Delaware. The latest committee includes representation from all branches of the Delaware judiciary, the Delaware State Bar Association, both houses of the legislature and any other members appointed by the Chief Justice to represent the legal community and other important perspectives.

“Delaware courts have always had the reputation of being one of the best in the nation. Reviewing the long-term strategies of our judiciary will ensure that Delaware stays the preeminent venue for corporate litigation as well as serving the needs of Delawareans who have interaction with our court system,” said Sen. Pettyjohn.

The first meeting of the committee is set for Monday, July 20.
