Markell to renominate two judges

Delaware Gov. Jack Markell says he will renominate two judges.

They are Supreme Court Justice Randy Holland and Family Court Judge Kenneth Martin Millman. Both would begin their third term if confirmed.

“Delaware’s courts have a well-earned reputation for excellence in large part because of the caliber of the men and women that answer to ‘Your Honor,’” Markell said. “Both of these nominees have served our state well and contributed significantly to that reputation. I am glad that both wish to continue their service to our great state.”

Supreme Court Justice Holland was the youngest person appointed to the court and is the longest serving Supreme Court justice in state history. If confirmed, he would be the first person appointed to a third term on the state’s highest court.

“Justice Holland would make history if confirmed to a third term and that honor could not be earned by a more committed person than Randy Holland,” Markell said. “He is a scholar of the law and legal history, and is a textbook example of the intellectual rigor and fair-mindedness that is a hallmark of the Delaware courts.”

Millman serves as Judge of the Family Court for Sussex County and was an attorney in private practice before joining the court.

“Family court judges have a difficult job, but Judge Millman has a passion for his work and a compassion that serves him and those before him well,” Markell said. “His experience and perspective have helped him craft new strategies for the court and helped implement national best practices that have had a positive impact on local families.”
