    Governor nominates new Superior Court judge

    Governor Jack Markell has nominated Diane Clarke Streett to fill a vacancy on Delaware’s Superior Court.

    Governor Jack Markell has nominated Diane Clarke Streett to fill a vacancy on Delaware’s Superior Court. If confirmed, she would take the seat vacated by retiring Judge John Babiarz.

    Streett has legal experience on a number of levels of government.  She’s been working as the Register of Wills for New Castle County since 2001.  Before that, she led the city of Wilmington’s Law Department.  She’s also served as counsel to U.S. Senate and House Judiciary Committees, and as assistant U.S. Attorney in Washington, D.C.

    In a statement announcing the nomination, Markell says, “Diane has been at the forefront of change during her more than 30 years of practicing law.  If confirmed, I am sure she will bring that same record of achievement to our Superior Court.”

    Streett’s nomination must be confirmed by the state Senate.
