Delaware Gov. John Carney has nominated Morgan T. Zurn, currently a master in Chancery, and Kathaleen S. McCormick, a corporate litigator with Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, to serve as vice chancellors on the Delaware Court of Chancery.

The selections, announced Thursday afternoon, would fill two newly created openings on the nation’s pre-eminent business court and add two more women to a bench that has historically been dominated by men. If confirmed, Zurn and McCormick would join Vice Chancellor Tamika Montgomery-Reeves to form a court with an unprecedented three women. Four men would be serving alongside them on the expanded court, venue for corporate litigation for most of the Fortune 500.
