The Delaware General Assembly unanimously voted to confirm current Delaware Court of Chancery Chancellor Leo E. Strine Jr. as the next Delaware Supreme Court chief justice. Strine was confirmed Jan. 29 after a roughly 30-minute hearing where he faced very friendly questions from lawmakers.

His 12-year term as chief justice began immediately after his confirmation.
