Gov. John Carney announced his nomination to appoint Gary F. Traynor to the Delaware Supreme Court. The Delaware Senate must approve the nomination.
“Gary is one of Delaware’s sharpest legal minds, and has a diverse legal background that will serve him well as a Justice on Delaware’s highest court,” said Gov. Carney. “I am convinced that Gary has the judgment and thoughtfulness necessary to serve on the Supreme Court, and I look forward to the Delaware Senate considering his nomination.”
Traynor brings experience in both the public and private sectors. He practiced law at Prickett, Jones & Elliott in Wilmington from 1990 to 2014. Since 2015, he has served as an assistant public defender, providing legal counsel to indigent Delawareans.
Traynor will replace Justice Randy J. Holland.
